“I have known Band’s art since his first exhibition in Australia in 1987 and I have always been moved by it. Band has a profound talent to create beauty, to make beautiful art. Band has a serious relationship with colour, shape, line and texture and the expression of these elements is as essential to him as love or water. His ability to utilise various techniques and to manipulate materials lends his work uniqueness and exceptional quality. Band’s techniques are sound and they are apt for their purpose. They are embedded in his art.” – Ross A. Waterman
