Set low to the ground at an incline, the construction suggests a fantastic slithery beast – a lizard or dragon – but also calls to mind a cannon or other instrument of war
For all its menace and intimations of disaster, the The Lurid Attack of The Mosters exerts a lyrical and seductive force. While the saws may have an intimidating effect, the tensile arches are strangely appealing, and the blue and orange paint that enlivens their surfaces establishes a palette that carries through the piece as a whole. Plain and patterned fabrics, some in bright colours, cover the top of the box. On the sides are images, transferred from newspapers and magazines, that allude to a wide range of subjects, from war and destruction to art, nature, and childhood play.
