"The artistic style and works have a fluidity. The mix of objects and style can certainly be termed eclectic; however the pieces are a reflection of a life. The viewer peels through the layers and symbology in order to make sense of and to place, in context, the story the piece is intending to portray" — Judy Wilkenfeld
"To me, art doesn’t speak, it sings. I associate art with music. I can observe a piece of art and conjure up a tune for it. I tend to build art with a song or soundtrack in mind. If I had to pick one favorite lyric to define by work, I would choose ’Soul on Fire. ’" — Michelle Ward
"I have a feeling that some of the colors would scream out in protest to being covered up. If each paint color were a celebrity, they would all want their fair share of screen time. My paintings change so much that it’s hard to know what layer will be covered and which layer will end up on top." — Julie Prichard

I found this to be a book you need to dip into, gain some new ideas, and then put it down. It is so packed with the voices of the 100 artists it is not easy to see clear threads. I would have preferred there to be fewer artists talking. That said, it is a well produced and attractive book that reflects the great diversity of the field of mixed media.
I find this book fascinating because it reveals real thoughts and feeling from artists who often typically only show us one side of themselves. Upon completion of this book I felt as if I'd connected with a diverse group of artists over happy hour at a large art retreat. And I loved learning that some of my own inner thoughts maybe aren't as abnormal as I'd thought--turns out others share my secrets!
