Asked about what outside of art informs his work, Webb comments: "... my work for some time has taken as a point of departure my family, in particular my Grandmother. I also like flags. Mid twentieth century design and architecture. Poets, such as Elizabeth Bishop, Pablo Neruda and Robert Lowell. Travel - and residencies in particular I've got a lot out of in recent years. I am a serious football supporter and made some paintings about stadiums. I like the shapes and they were also about my childhood/family - I remembered evening games under floodlights, getting in early to see all of the red seats and the grass, the brightest green imaginable."
