From the Foreword
“Martin Barooshian is an artist whose sweep was wide, whose influences and interests were many, whose output was prodigious, and whose exuberance, inventiveness, imagination, and artistic commitment were boundless.
It has been a personal delight to read Russo’s careful, sensitive and thoughtful volume recounting Barooshian’s dedication to art making and the multiple facets of his long and important career.
I recommend this impressive publication and the remarkable body of work it chronicles to you.”
