“…it was his Retrobots that really captured people’s imagination. The ultimate toys for boys. the sculptures engaged an audience that was pop-culture savvy; they reference 50s B-movies and have more than a passing resemblance to Japanese tin robots.
One of the key elements in the success of Horspool’s work is his attention to details. Each component part is as important as the whole. Part of the beauty of his robots is that they capture and celebrate the ethos of an era where industrial design was booming, and items were built to last.”
