Reviews

Baroque and subversive.--Joe Bendel "J. B. Spins"

Jim Flora's artwork is ultraviolet radiation in tempera and ink--it crackles with such energy, it practically sizzles ozone...This anthology celebrates a visionary whose work is steeped in vari-hued paradox...Yet, despite the raucous energy projected in these hyperactive mosaics, a typical Flora freak circus often projects harmony and balance--an ordered chaos.--Mark Frauenfelder "Boing Boing"

Picasso, Matisse, Steinberg, my friend Charles -- they all stole from Jim Flora, who was both ahead of his time and before his time.--William Wegman
