Goodrich writes: "Deborah Rosenthal continues to infuse a highly personal approach with intimations of the mythic. Stylistically, the artist's abstracted paintings have always recalled for me Robert Delaunay in their melodic, organic overlapping of planes of vivid color... But her goals seem quite different, closer in spirit to Kandinsky or Rouault in their transcendental longings. Her latest showing of nearly 20 paintings, depicting wayfarers and abstracted landscapes, not only depict but personify journeys of the soul."
John Goodrich reviews Nature is the Teacher at the Painting Center. Goodrich eloquently describes both the miraculous qualities of sight (and the "rich connections" it provides) and the increasing marginalization of sensory experience. He concludes: "the work of the four participating painters - Simon Carr, Stanley Lewis, Thaddeus Radell, and Deborah Rosenthal - argues cogently for the interdependence of visual awareness and artistic tradition."
