QUOTES

“December 1984 is remembered with great fondness: Brendan Smith, Terry Murphy, Antony Clare and I staged a VERY small exhibition at Le Scoops, a groovy ice-cream joint in Elizabeth Street. It seemed appropriate to return something to a space that had given us so much pleasure.”

John Willsteed
