"Just as ALL emotions need to be savoured and not suppressed, the manner in which I apply paint to canvas is an extension and replication of this very concept. Painting is a mirror image of my truest, most emotional self. The ebb and flow, the push and pull and the tug and release of artistic expression is my constant inspiration and motivation. My art does not hold back, contain, appease or soothe. My extensive journey is all about flow, joy, deep rooted curiousity and simply put, awe of raw emotion. Challenging the status quo is important to me. This perpetually results in my best work." ~Carlo Amantea, 2022

"Silvio Russo is one of the most eloquent and insightful artists of this doctrine, seeking ever subtler and surer command of space's expanding horizons. Whatever he touches goes through a constant transformation, whether the dimension is the city, a room or a wall his art is revealed to us as an intellectual and sensory excursion into the mind and sensibility of the man himself; drawing us immediately into the experience of his art." ~Arthur Erickson

"What makes art intriguing is not what is easily revealed, but the question marks that remain. So it is with our world: from our senses, we attempt to construct, to build meaning, from our surroundings." 

Henry Saxe is a Canadian artist of international repute. He represented Canada at the 1978 Venice Biennale, received the distinguished Order of Canada from the Queen's representative, the Governor General of Canada and awarded the prestigious Paul-Emile Borduas prize from the Province of Quebec." ~Christopher Youngs, 2007
