Lot Essay

“Man’s relation to his environment. The relationship between objects, materials and images. The creation of objects that don’t exist in the natural or in the functional world which can reflect and transmit information and feelings about the contemporary world and my own existence.” (T. Cragg, in J. Debbaut, “The Metamorphosis of the Object,” Tony Cragg, exh. cat., Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, 1989, p. 5)
