Steven Campbell Calendar, September.

Dolls’R’ Us,  Acrylic on Paper, 1992.

The following statement is verbatim from Duncan Macmillan’s book:

Steven Campbell, The Story so Far.

When asked by the author the story behind the image Steven’s reply was:

‘It is about trying to have sex in a house full of children. It is nearly impossible. You become like them.’

It was a statement he was to repeat at the opening of his exhibition when being interviewed by George Melly for the TV news broadcast that evening. Not exactly what our parents were expecting when we told them to tune in.
