'The first-hand responses I've had tend to be bemusement, and a need to identify, to know what it is they're looking at. When asked, for example, what 'Quimbilicum' means, I just point to the work.'
'You mentioned the enigmatic and I think people do look at the work searching for the familiar, thinking they've found it, then realising there's probably something strange going on. Some people appear to see only cute little animals, sea creatures or whatever, even when they've just been sex-slapped.'
Tony Bond talks about his work Swoop, which features in our BFWDSSSM exhibition in the latest edition of Bulletin. It'll be available in our Shop from 1 March, and it's chock full of interviews with the artists in the catchily abbreviated show above, and much more.
