‘It is never my custom to use words lightly. If twenty-seven years in prison have done anything to us, it was to use the silence of solitude to make us understand how precious words are and how real speech is in its impact on the way people live and die.’–Nelson Mandela, activist, South African president, Nobel laureate (1918-2013)

‘If we can call the paintings [of Ron Martin, 1943] sensitive or exuberant, or even romantic, then that is because we are induced in our spectator role to use them as responsive projection screens for our own conscious and unconscious fears or desires. In James D Campbell’s words … ”perception itself can become a truly creative act.” ‘ Abstract Painting In Canada, 184. More.

Eli Bornstein’s [1922] Multiplex Structurist Reliefs
‘are meticulously calculated, but intuitively rather than mathematically, and all decisions about size, placement, and internal relations are based in visual assessments in relation to nature. Light too is a dynamic factor, in play of colour reflections and cast shadows, as in nature’. Abstract Painting In Canada, 293. More.
