  • Catalogue Essay

    Resnick's agitated brush indicates both his radicalism and his conservatism in relation to his AbEx peers — conservative because a sensuality and an awareness of the nuance of painterliness ground him within European tradition…. His work is fierce, poetic, and full of energy. In fact, he's one of those who's turned energy into an ethical human value.

    - D. Cohen, “Milton Resnick Was an AbEx Pioneer”, The New York Sun, May 29, 2008
