Dr Penelope Curtis, Paul Bayley, David Gilmour,, 1997
Bainbridge's studio is full of tourist knick-knacks, toy soldiers, souvenirs and little collectable items; it's a cabinet of curiosities. He transforms these objects by enlarging, covering and camouflaging them to create new associations and new identities. The latent humour in the work seems to be connected to existential fears that connect themselves to the viewer's unconscious. This catalogue concentrates on work from 1990 that has never been published before.
