LOOK WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT MCD's Art: “MCD has become a master of paint which flows into form . . . The art is technically proficient and an example that representational art can convey feeling and emotion far more than place and time . . . It is beautifully nonessential and detached, immersed in myth . . . resolved into an art of real force and power . . . The intensity of MCD’s application of paint, the refusal to compromise individual vision are all traits of serious creativity.” -The Straight Creek Journal, Carl Fowler “Thank you for the samples of your books. Both Eric Cornell and myself got an opportunity to take a look at them and found them quite interesting.” -Carl E. Wieman, Professor of Physics, University of Colorado, Nobel Laureate in Physics “My daughter is very interested in your art, my wife and I had to come and visit and see it ourselves. The Land of The Number Zero books are especially interesting.” -Harry Bertoia, sculptor and designer, creator of the chapel at M.I.T. “Years in the making, MCD has developed a kaleidoscope of paintings in The Land of The Number Zero books that are both medieval and modern at the same time. Very dream-like, extremely sensuous, the work is almost a cross between Marc Chagall and Richard Lindner . . The work really is a great menu of visual delights that are well worth the time to linger over, savoring the delightful blends of colors and forms.” -The Straight Creek Journal “The paintings of MCD offer a feast of free association. Some recall German expressionism or Brechtian theater, others suggest the influence of primitive art and surrealist dreams. Many of the acrylics unwind in a spiral from the center of the canvas, like reveries from a genie’s lamp. Using layered, textured paint, and some metallic colors, MCD draws from a palette of deep greens, rust and browns to create a netherworld dotted with haunting faces and shadows. They are mysterious and powerful works.” -Now Magazine, The Denver Post
