“In Warren’s art... what you can hold onto in iconographical terms counts for less than what you can’t, and what matters most are the implications and effects of her refusals. When she got back the ruined cast of BOBO, for example, she began working back into it, piling more febrile, finger-worked masses of clay onto its already-exploited armature—generally speaking this is not done, but Warren never saw a restriction she didn’t immediately want to transgress—and the result, given a title intentionally difficult to pronounce, was DOU DOU CHÉ (2006).” Martin Herbert Parkett No. 78, 2007
