"The fool, mouth agape, pops up repeatedly, a big headed creature on articulated legs in “Bellhop to Bishop”, he is a childish figure perched on a spindly stool. Both comic and menacing, smart and dumb, he reminds us of circuses while suggesting a metaphor for the tension and anxiety of our contemporary times." Merry Murphy, Art Journal, 2009.
