"In Still Life #207, two white tulips their crowns grown apart inhabit a blue-grey-green vase against a royal blue backdrop and red underground. This five-plex of chromatics creates a tight well chosen suit, shirt and tie that if you will is succesful in marrying together colors and forms in the forefront of a narrow color range or as a sky starred by a rare avis - here in this case with this vase in this composition by a sparkling chameleon hue".

"In this recent suite of paintings Azank has in places actually loosened his brushstroke a bit.
Such a canvas is Still Life #173 wherein a long slaloming swooning Tulip preens in an innate serpentine rhythm and otherwise winds out in the form of a single gesture from the clear glass vase in which the flower is placed. The vessel in turn is grounded upon and placed against a burgundy and silver gray pewter backdrop. This work in its soft passages takes on a semblance in its seamless transition to the effortless partitions and blends within Sir Anthony Van Dyck's most mysterious skies."
from "When the Subject is also an Object.", Lee Klein
"In Still Life #166 a serpentine rise painted in a single gesture ends in the blossom of a yellow Tulip, The two part stem of the flower leans forward in the vase as it were coital with the stalk.".
