Catalogue Note

"The constant synthesizing of the figurative and the abstract is a key characteristic of the meta-world of Mr. Cragg’s sculpture. His aim, as stated in a kind of personal manifesto in 1985, is 'the creation of objects and images that don’t exist in the natural or functional world but that are able to reflect and transmit information and sensations about the world and its very existence'.” 

Roderick Conway Morris, "Inventing a 'New Visual Language," The New York Times, 13 October 2010, n.p.
