Combining images of the armless Venus de Milo, a sculpture of dog and a photograph of an old friend, Nicol muses on illness, death and co-incidence.
"There are gaps in every aspect of Voodoo Dog to allow the viewer to bring life to it - questions for us to answer. It’s a jigsaw puzzle where there’s always a piece missing. We are left unsure how much is fact, how much fiction. Like that stranger on a bar stool, Nicol may be pulling our leg. The real dog story could be the reverse: his three-legged dog the inspiration for his own three-legged sculpture" - Mark Amery
