1. Untitled (Girlfriend), 1993, Richard Prince 

MT: I love the Richard Price biker; the work is incredible. I have a lot of art and this work is one of my favourites. I’ve lived with it hanging above my bed at home for many years. When I saw it, I was amazed at his ability to appropriate a photograph, and make it different – to make it entirely his own. Richard Prince has been particularly interesting for me, because he challenges me. He’s somebody who has influenced me a lot in the way that I think. The idea of appropriation for me was a very new thing, because I’ve always been quite respectful about other people’s property. What I’ve realised is that he made us look at things that we weren’t looking at properly, and challenged us to look at things differently.
