"In the gallery's third and newest display, Kingdom of Colors, patrons are immersed into 270 degrees of bursting paint bombs, swirling colors and flowers and shapes of varied design, all set to an instrumental that allows the viewer to enter a dreamlike state of imagination and emotion." - Fox 5
"Every frame of the video has been shot with macro lenses. The result offers a fluid and otherworldly composition of interacting colors. As a viewer, your best decision is to simply sit, and let it all wash all over you. No two photos of the show will be the same, no two reactions either." -Brightest Young Things
