Catalogue Note

'You can never understand every work of art completely. Each time you encounter it you have a new experience. The mystery is in this elusiveness.' (William Turnbull, Interview by Caroline Ngui, 'Sculptures with a Presence,' Straits Times, Wednesday, 19th September 1984, p.7, quoted in Davidson, ibid., p.74)
