Testimonials

Thank you for the thorough and very helpful feedback. I had repeatedly meant to tell you that I really admire how thorough and detail-oriented of a lecturer and professor you are. Your remarkable passion and interest in art theory kept the course fascinating and stimulating!

Thanks again for a great semester.

Your Mistress of Ceremony leadership at the post-graduate Shuffle afternoons, 2009, was extraordinarily atypical and reassuring -- your MC comments to the student presenters in that they were genuinely affirming and supportive; I'm sure the students appreciated that - a kind of acknowledgement that no other MC ever managed!

"Lycia's work is perched, swaying, teetering and fully enjoying the loss of equilibrium...I am struck by her unique, mystic, creative power... With Lycia the mold was most certainly broken."
STEVE MURAKISHI. FORMER HEAD, PRINTMAKING, CRANBROOK ACADEMY OF ART, USA 1991
"Lycia's work touches -- deeply -- people's lives; her art creates community. Lycia Trouton's environmentally-conscious and complex monumental work with natural and, so-called, waste materials is compelling, intellectually rigorous, and just plain beautiful. Lycia brings to her work a commitment to public discourse, an engagement with social themes, an extraordinary intellectual rigor and a rare and refreshing integrity. Her public art is significant and beautiful."
BEN MITCHELL, NORTHWEST MUSEUM OF ARTS AND CULTURE (MAC) SENIOR ART CURATOR/CRITIC / EDITOR. FORMER PANELIST FOR NEA, STATE AND CITY ARTS COUNCILS, USA.
"The desire for understanding, from the very external and political to the very personal, is the impulse for Lycia Trouton's work."
GERRY CRAIG, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR/ART DEPARTMENT HEAD, UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS, MANHATTAN, KS, USA.
