Prior praise and/or review quotes on author/artist's work: "Resolutely turning their backs on the contemporary world, two extraordinary installations by Paul Etienne Lincoln reveled in an extravagant nostalgia for the scientific, artistic and technological achievements of earlier times. At both galleries, Lincoln cast himself as a behind-the-scenes ringmaster, a role which began to suggest his relationship to the half-imagined, half-remembered worlds which he coaxes into existence." —Art in America
