"In the main gallery – where I painted the walls magenta – I placed an extraordinary, enormous print by Richard Long RA on the end wall. It's the focal point, and the first work you see when you come in. It's a carborundum print, and it has such immense power.

For something on paper to command such an enormous place is really quite an achievement. And I think it's particularly beautiful, with a sense of such a soft surface – very particular."
