This is the smaller partner sculpture to Gregory's larger work. Gregory's practice is often marked by his acerbic wit and childlike imagination, the combination of which questions and explores the flux state of postmodernity. Despite the tricycle rider's lack of facial features, its' earnest expression can still be understood by way of its body language and truncated physical form. The ability to create credible monumental sculpture that is suffused with comedy is no mean feat and is seldom realised on this scale.
As Damien Hirst has said of Gregory, “in these visually bombarding and morally conflicting times, seemingly effortlessly he creates art that prods, and pokes, ignores and strokes and slaps us into submission.” Unnervingly humorous and wonderfully kitsch, One of us on Tricycle does just this.
