- "The drawings of OH Vilag propose a line of argument that promises directly as a conscientious narrative, or indirectly playing off ironic comparisons,
- He feels sometimes deep within his catalog of 'the missing' and 'the commonplace'."
- "Genuine voice of a typical outsider, fresh and unpredictable!
- into very strong visual images, which resonate, in their span of styles,
- OH Vilag's concept of art ending in book is for me an excellent format
- "You write 'Oh World! Oh Human'
- It is right and proper that you offer us an image of Kathe Kollowitz,
- Artist of this card brings into focus the everyday among plants. But you forego the pretty and cute
- until we recognize in them our fellow human being, our brother, our sister, IMAGO DEI. The missing belong to us. The mute belong to us.
- "OH Vilag (or Richard Eaton as I have known him from the National Academy and Art Students League) feels deeply,
- I respond to how closely tied his art is to his existence. Eaton's art truly extends beyond stylistic exercises, indeed to me that says a great deal
- "Do Walls Have Imagination is a remarkable work.
- to the impeccable mix of amazing images and probing texts, exuberant color
- but with a kind of lyric compassion - what is unfinished and maybe could never be finished.
- Arthur C. Danto on OH Vilag
- OH Vilag has a gift of transporting his emotional sensations
- with such diverse artists as Goya, Van Gogh, Picasso, Baskin.
- however unconventional for the playful mind and hand."
Leonid Lerman, artist
- and it is your election to depict the human that is under-represented in our celebrity-inebriated world that pleases me.
- for she too depicted the opressed and ignored, the unbeautiful and the ugly (as well, in their demonic demensions, as the oppressors).
- and bring into focus human beings who lack the attraction to lead us to look at them twice. You depict then so that we have to look at them steadily
- Our mercenaries not only serve us and/or in our place, but belong to us."
Tony Stoneburner, teacher and poet
- invests those feelings and strong inner energies into his drawings and paintings. The work has speed and rhythm along with thoughtfulness.
- in the unity of all the parts coming together like they should and why his drawings are vital forms to absorb and connect to."
Sigmund Abeles, artist
- The label "artist's book" though potentially descriptive, doesn't do justice
- and thoughtful composition that is found in this volume. It is a treat indeed.
