"The body art of Emily Svec takes us a long way from clown faces and kitty whiskers. She does up her boys and girls with a jewelers intensity that in no way interferes with the sweet scrapping between her colors, the lively contrasts. Every curl, every streak, seems alert to the body and its pleasures, yet the imaginations always shaped by some refining drama, some controlling intelligence. To attend an event that features Body by Svec is to surrender to a midsummer nights dream; your wit can never match that of the Fairy Queen."
John Domini, critic for New York Times, author of A TOMB ON THE PERIPHERY.
