About the Work
"My process in selecting these works was very much what caught my eye the most when scrolling through the large collection on the Sarjeant website. I made a shortlist first and then realised that the majority of the artworks I’d chosen were from the 70s and 80s. This installation caught my eye the most, I’ve never seen Debra Bustin‘s work before. I love the chaos."
- Nicole Gaffney, 'My Choice' exhibition series, July 2022.
