''I enter the studio with no idea of what is going to happen. I bring a number of things to the mix - a knowledge and understanding of grammar and language and a series of references that provide the basis for a range of ideas. There begins a process of discovery, invention and a curious desire to reveal to myself something new and exciting, and allow me to view things in a different way.
The hope is that the viewer will also come to see things differently.
My work mimics and inverts processes of archaeology through the media of painting, printmaking and drawing. '' Lennox Dunbar [with thanks to Tatha Gallery]
