Art Transformations From the Longest Sea Voyage in History:
"Stowe is a serious discovery. He is a natural born mystic whose long voyage seems to have been an extended religious transcendental experience-and what came out of it are paintings that are quite intriguing. They are not classifiable in any certain way. They seem to live in a borderline, exploring between the psychotic and the transcendental, spiritual experience. These works definitely come out of what the psychoanalyst Romain Roland referred to in 1927 as, coincidentally, the "Oceanic Feeling." They are densely layered and as a body overlap with so many modern concepts in painting." – Donald Kuspit, Dean of American Art Historians, from article by Peter Falk, Discoveries in American Art
"Reid is the ultimate life performance artist." – Stephen Stux, New York Gallerist
"The art world is his current voyage. And besides that, wintry Cape Horn is a ride in an amusement park." – Internationally renowned art critic and writer, Anthony Haden Guest, Whatever Floats His Boat.
