The Book of Bitzer Fragments
(1990)

image to come

‘Bitzer’ was one of the artist’s favourite companions as a young child. As he worn appearance and loss of on ‘button-eye’ attests, he was much loved. Handed-down to the artist’s brother, Jamie, to whom the book is dedicated, ‘Bitzer’ acquired a knitted jacket to help keep him together. In 1989 while preparing for an exhibition at this gallery, ‘Bitzer’ re-emerged.
