On this series, the critic Thomas Micchelli has written: "The wildness of Birth of Romanticism comes as a shock…. Geometric shapes…have become the ground for compounded explorations of form and material (often literalized through collaged scraps of paper and linen). In their curious, fractious elegance, the drawings resemble diagrams of random thoughts, or maps charting the uncertain course of an indeterminate journey.”
