PETER LAMB
The random and chaotic nature of Peter Lamb’s works
suggest an over turning of the established order, not only
socially and politically, but also creatively, they are tangible
physical reminders of a past, a past that can be revaluated,
misinterpreted, altered, distorted and even denied.
