 ‘Malcolm told me this work was the Wellington mob looking for favours and cutting each other’s throats in an attempt to profile their own position and their egos.’—Graeme Harrison. ‘A gorgeous rose … blooms from the blood which fountains from axe-mutilated figures. I emphasise that this is not gruesome - schizoid horror and beauty dissolve in playfulness.’ Stephen Cain 1996 ‘Evading Easy Categorisation’
