Celebrated as the doyen of British photographers, Bailey is not a familiar name as a sculptor, and is perhaps better described as an artist in three dimensions.  The principal characteristics which distinguish his artworks in all media are their spontaneity and direct communicativeness.  He consistently pares down visual data to its essence, whether he is confronted by a given object in front of his lens or physically manipulating or constructing other materials.

The new sculptures reflect his personality – witty and sharp, they provoke an immediate and authentic response: moreover, despite his instinctive distrust of over-intellectualisation, they evidently share an underlying seriousness as well as a delight in their fabrication.   The remarkable, visceral objects that are the outcome of his collaboration with the foundry Pangolin Editions, are the most recent testament to the restless imagination of this vibrant, quixotic image-maker.
