  • About

    'This work ought not need me as the artist to make pronouncements about its meaning. For one thing there is in it very little of a personal vision or private sensibility. In their size and scale, their period connotations, their employment of classical conventions, the photographs are … reminiscent of monumental sculpture which is, out of all art forms, the most public … It could be said of these photographs that the language they "speak" is so much a part of our culture that the audience already knows how to interpret them, even if it doesn't "know" that it knows.' Anne Ferran 1987
