  "Spalatin's painted universe taunts and tempts and seduces, only to refute superficial solutions and rebuff comfortable familiarity."

James Auer

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

 

 

  "Marko Spalatin's prints are immaculate renderings of color structures in ambiguous space, modules of cubes and geometric forms united to color intensities that vibrate heat or cold with a sonorous lyricism."

Rosemary Teres

Rochester Times-Union

 

 

  "Spalatin modulates his colors to create implied shadows, so every pattern seems to be continually in motion.  As in the most effective op art, though, the motion is never resolved; it's always unstable."

Edward J. Sozanski

Philadelphia Inquirer

 

 

  "Although composed of flat, geometric shapes, Spalatin's Hexagon VI integrates jutting pyramidal forms with linear bands which form a recurring hexagon.  The interaction of shape and form, as well as the tonal shifts and contrasts of light and dark, causes the painting to become a rich visual field pulsing between the materiality of form and the opticality of color.  Neither form nor color is privileged.  Rather they interact in a perceptually challenging, sensuous dance.  A seemingly stable, patterned world is suddenly destabilized, and nothing stays quite still.  For Spalatin, movement is evidence of light's changing presence."

John Yau

Art Critic

(excerpt from essay

appearing in Marko Spalatin's

retrospective exhibition catalog)

Signing an Akumal III limited edition print

  "Mr. Spalatin's large canvases, showing geometrical solids floating in space, are comparable to minimal sculpture freed from the laws of gravity, but are a hundredfold more interesting than their three-dimensional prototypes.  Not exactly illusionistic, these explicitly defined abstract still lifes ... are brought to life by unexpected mutations of color.  Acutely self-limited but exquisitely controlled, these are much more satisfying paintings than they may sound."

John Canaday

New York Times

 

 

  "Spalatin's print suite Silba is nine prints sharing an archetype: two dissimilar segments of illusionistically pleated forms, hinged like jaws, produce an assymetrical, zig-zag-edged fissure near the center of the print.  The pleating commences boldly out of a sea of flat color which reaches the top and bottom edges of the print.  Light rakes across these accordion forms from opposite directions, top and bottom, confounding the space.  Because the creasing does not have a logical basis it just arises the forms cannot be said to possess concavity or convexity.  Helped by the eerie light, this property seems to constantly reverse, precluding a neat circular reading.  It is something like the world of M.C. Escher deprived of anecdote; the Moebius strip is a useful paradigm for the confounding that occurs."

William Zimmer
