"I liked almost everything in this show, but especially Tyrell Collins' exquisite, meditative oil pencil on black paper drawings made up of numerous fine lines of atmospheric color that are moving and mysterious as Vija Celmins' obsessive drawings or Mark Rothko's poignant abstract paintings."

"I could have done a show that was all about these drawings that are unbelievable technical feats. Like this square composition by Jacob El Hanani... Or this Bruce Conner... Or this piece on black paper by Tyrell Collins, made by swirling a colored pencil... all made out of tiny lines, so luminous."
