“Using different techniques allows Shimon Okshteyn to generate rich and complex surfaces, where collage has a lion’s share. A work is often designed as a huge pattern where each item is adjusted against another to build an image. Neighborly relationships participate in a new visual unity and semantic meaning of the work.”  __Jean-Pierre Garand , Art Historian

“Through the windows in his studio, I see the tall trees of the forest surrounding his house. I recall him telling me, almost confessionally, that for an artist not the least bit interested in landscapes, he suddenly noticed an arresting tree formation near his home, and the next thing he knew he had embarked on Hamptons Landscapes…” ___Kelcey Edwards, Southampton, NY
