TPL: Do you have any favourite artists or photographers you would like to share with us, and the reason for their significance?
NT: I have many favourite artists whose work I admire, but I’m only going to name a few who’ve had the most impact on my work in various ways. First things first, I love Edward Hopper! Other painters that have influenced me are Edgar Degas, Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch, Caravaggio and Yiannis Moralis. My favourite photographers are numerous, but to name only a few we have Cindy Sherman, Gregory Crewdson, Julia Fullerton Batten, Anni Leppala, Elina Brotherus, Hannah Starkey, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, William Eggleston, Steven Shore, and the list won’t stop... Oh, and I also love the work of Bill Viola, Chantal Akerman, Lucas Samaras and Jannis Psychopedis.
