Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967692717, Hardcover)"The work of Figurative artist Steven Assael challenges us to look beyond our dressed-up preconceptions about representation and the body*his images point to certain distinctions between photography and drawing that seem to have been lost, to the ability of illustration to convey a sense of duration, of minute and gradual change over time. In short, Assael's hand captures the temporal nuances missed by the mechanical abstractions of the camera. His portraits are often of single figures, and these figures usually appear without background or setting*what we are we left with is the inner self of the person, engaging in dialogue with the artist and the viewer. Drawing in ink and pencil, Assael astounds us with his technical ability, proving that care and artistic skill are still essential elements of great art."
