“Okshteyn is a force to contend with. His well-informed appropriationist tendencies are abetted by the artist’s urge towards classical traditions that balance gloomy introspection against outward looking strength. Add to this a coherent yet surprising use of thematic material, a richness of invention, and systematized build up of narrative — all of these aspects make Okshteyn’s work irresistibly attractive to the eye —a haptic feast laced with megatonic power.” __Dominique Nahas, New York City
