Writers and Critics on Nora Reza

Richard Newlin, author of Richard Diebenkorn: Works on Paper, has written about her work:

“Reza’s best work brings a Pacific Coast land’s end luminism together with Zen transcendentalism in a meditative, saturated and deeply personal vision…. Studied in the French origins of modernism and conditioned by the Western sublime tradition of the San Francisco Bay Area, Reza’s paintings are epigrams of intelligence and grace.”
