"He transposes the prismatic refraction of light and the essence of the moment to the canvas in color, texture, and contrasting elements. His success is delightful, for as a painter he feints and parries between the traditions of realism and the abstract. And in a baroque manner, he maintains a formality throughout the structure of each composition that displays a bravado that runs parallel to a paso doble."

Stephen Vollmer, Independent Curator, Dallas, Texas
