'…an artist whose work will always live and in which it will be possible to find new interest for generations to come'.
HE Winder, Rand Daily Mail, 1971
'His art remains a strange exception to his times... it does not settle into the consensus and cold sobriety of the powerful, but remains a perfume of the first decade of the century strangely fresh and subtle so far from its origins'.
Dr Jean-Pierre de la Porte, January 2010
