Reviews & Testimonials

“Vehicles in Contemporary Art is a visually attractive resource that takes an innovative look at the art practice of five contemporary artists…

It is my fervent hope that this is the beginning of a series of art texts that use non-conventional subject matter as springboards into art learning and making. It makes a welcome addition to the field!”
