"In the summer of 1960 I was swept away by the Jackson Pollocks on display in Peggy Guggenheim's Venice home. In the summer of 1995, that same feeling of awe came back for only the second time when I first saw the work of Corinne Whitaker in her Carmel studio. I suspect that Whitaker's work appeals to me and many others trying to make sense of the information age for much the same reasons that Pollock's work resonated with men and women trying to make sense of the Post-World War II turmoil: in periods of social upheaval a few artists are able to produce new metaphors and new techniques that capture the anxieties present in every transitional period.

Whitaker is a non-linear innovator in art. Rather than approach art quietly by the "back staircase" of convention, she has stormed the main gates of our sensibilities with the tools and language of modern science. All artists stand on the shoulders of predecessors. But it seems to me that Whitaker has not been content to stand: she has leapt off in order to propel herself in unexplored directions."

Regarding our 23rd book, "Wanting":

"A major contribution to our sense of beauty, design, identity, achieved with grace and style."

Dr. Richard Falk, Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University, 2016

"No More War" is a powerful message for you to put out there because warfare today is impossible to live with. The planet grows smaller by the hour. I dare say we are in a state of critical mass over national boundaries, and they should not exist on a finite planet with no where to turn but spin us round with our backs and eyes to the sun. After all, we have journeyed four billion plus years to now. What "now" you say, with camera and iPad in hand, with straight-forward imagery as you feel it course through your veins? Very brave indeed and so deeply felt that they make their way onto aluminum panels that apparently reflect back on you some mirror of a world that teeters between chaos and structured hope. If "people" look back at you through the forms and imagery that you conjure then it's a phenomenon that speaks to you - to danger - to the crisis that mounts.

I greatly admire what you are grasping with your art, and may it thrive! Thanks, Corinne, for caring.
