Lizzy Le Quesne wrote; ‘The 'Messenger' (2002-2003) resembles a bomb, hanging frozen in mid explosion. A mass of raw matter shoots metal rods in all directions, like a planet in the midst of formation or destruction, or a moment of inspiration or change’, ‘The sheer, cold brilliance and the fine blend of subtlety and monumentality in Gibbons’ sculptures are thrilling’.
