Suzanne Stryk on Maria Sibylla Merian

Most alluring to me is her enviable touch—the delicately notched antennae, chomped and curled leaves, or gooey-pale larvae casting shadows as they inch along.

Brendan Carroll on Kamrooz Aram

He has skirted being defined by tradition, modernism or post-modernism by replacing theory and ideology with personal expression.

Alan Feltus on Susan Yanero

…her cast of characters played out dramas on a stage that is both circus and life as she knows it…

Elizabeth Neel on Francis Bacon

Regarding the Other in horror and finding that Other in myself, it’s impossible to look at “Study of a Baboon” and not be sucked into a vortex of abjection and a struggle for empathy.

Trenton Doyle Hancock on Kerry James Marshall

The cool confident stare of Marshall’s “Nat Turner” speaks directly to me as a painter, saying to accept without regret the task at hand and rewrite the master script of possibility.
