"Forman's work is about the journey-his, theirs, ours. It is about transparent shadows of the real world, shifting as we shift,  fortelling our own ephemerality even as they document us for posterity, playing tricks  on our vision like Puck, like the trickster spirits of every culture. It is about surface, but also about deeper layers and juxtapositions of thread, form, subject matter, symbol and meaning. Robert Forman is a remarkable artist and a powerful trickster, who knows that the external 

world is a surface to be penetrated to explore the many planes of existence."
