An artist of uncompromising vision and brilliance ... His work is not for the faint-hearted for he is certainly an acquired taste, reserved for the few who try to penetrate the surface, who have an innate urge to scratch beneath convention and open their imaginations to the demons of viscerality.
Geers, Kendell. (2002) ‘Undiscovered at 82’. In Atkinson, Brenda et al. Robert Hodgins, Cape Town: Tafelberg Publishers. Page 68.
