“Hung in frames the same doctor's-office-pink as the towel rack in Scarlatina, the graphite and pastel drawings are faithfully rendered as if pages from a taxonomy or medical text book. 'Ascelepius' pictures what seems to be a dental or surgical tool intertwined with the sprig of a plant. The drawing and its title recall the so-named ancient Greek god of medicine and particularly his snake-coiled staff, which still is a symbol associated with healing.” — Danny Olda, Burnaway
