"There is something primal and satisfying about the nude and water. In combination, they establish an irresistible rapport between the viewer and the art - an effect that is presented clearly in Karin Rosenthal's work. She uses the attractive elemnts of water, abstraction, and the nude body to provide sensual pleasure while de-emphasizing the sexual. Sexual pleasure, dependent on immediate and physical gratification, can be fleeting and mundane, while sensual pleasure lives its own life of constant anticipation and renewal. She builds the anticipation and expectation that a powerful combination of elements has been forged. Together, they beocme something other, something potent, and something more than their individual qualities could deliver alone." - from the introduction by Ronald L. Crusan, Director Danforth Museum of Art.
