Criticism[edit]

'Klein seems to think in sculptural terms as easily and directly as the bird sings. His show of sculpture and graphics at the Accademia Italiana and European Academy is almost like a ride in Disneyland, the invention is so ebullient.’ John Russell Taylor

The Times, London

'Klein tells stories pirouetting on the fine edge between detachment and sympathy.’ Cathy Courtney, Art Monthly

Randy Klein's book is an epic tale of creation and destruction. The structure allows us to follow a narrative and to uncover layers of meaning in a way that could not be done with any other form of art.’ Meg Duff, Tate Gallery Librarian Books by Artists
