"Suits, shirts, ties, and gloves ... hundreds of them, painstakingly recreated on a diminutive scale in a dizzying array of colours and styles. [...]

Resembling places we may have been and things we may have seen or worn, their reductive size imbues the ensemble with a strange and arresting presence. [...]

Once new and desirable, now not so new and not so desirable, the clothes might be stand-ins for identity. They embody a desire to reveal and conceal, to conform or to be different, to be marked out as an individual or disappear into a crowd. [...]

MENS SUITS imparts no specific story, but allows for multiple possibilities. At one and the same time extravagant and introvert, the sculpture - like the material from which it is made - guards its secrets."
