Ralph Joachim Artist
In reviewing Ralph Joachim's Geometric Abstractions at the Attic Gallery, Santa Cruz Sentinel's art critic Maureen Davidson stated in part:
"Ralph Joachim's abstractions are bravura statements appropriate in scale for the lofty architecture of the
gallery...These high precision human-dwarfing geometric sequences arranged with the physics of color in
mind...trigger an involuntary nervous response in the viewer, and thus...make a very specific connection.
I was literally jerked into the present by Circus Triad whose Close Encounters-kind of color-messaging is a
physical experience, based of the way that colors react to each other at the seat of human intelligence. Joachim's precision begins with passion, however, and the responses he so specifically desires to evoke are emotional...an integration of mind and body to reach the spirit."
