New Book Review

“The book is an impressive compendium of accomplished, colorful, sometimes exotic and wildly heterogeneous artwork.  Spalenka is eager to turn his skills to virtually anything that catches his fancy, and his vision is consistently a blend of the Dionysian and the Apollonian, the dark and the light side of the human spirit–evident already, before you open the book, in the neo-rococo cover image of a nude female figure with a butterfly at the head and a skull at the feet.  Aesthetically, you might imagine a cross between Gabriel Rossetti and Odilon Redon, Max Ernst and Salvador Dali, with a lot of the spirit of art nouveau thrown in for good measure.”


Peter Clothier, art critic, author, and writer of The Buddha Diaries.
