“Her paintings sway and sing with the rhythm and colour of the coast while her organically undulating forms express the intricacies and possibilities of floral manifestation that thrive happily in our verdant rainforest” – Ian Tan Gallery

    Well, Emily Carr inspires from the west, even unseen, not noted. I do see a unique individuality, but I still can’t help thinking about a certain part of west coast art so defined. Guzek’s paintings are wonderful!

    This might sound like I don’t think they’re great paintings done with talent, but I don’t mean that in the least: they remind me of the paint-by-numbers kids I used to do as a child. Of course way better in product and method! They are beautiful.
