"The ability to see time, to read time, in the spatial whole of the world and, on the other hand, to perceive the fillingof space not as an immobile background, a given that is completed once and for all, but as an emerging whole, an event - this is the ability to read in everything signs that show time in it's course......"

M. M. Bakhtin. "Speech genres and other late essays". Translated by V. W. McGee. Austin University of Texas Press.

     

"Natapoff's works reveal the sheer visual excitement lying in the textural rythms of everyday urban landscape - these disquieting, eroded, peeling, chaotic perspectives of the city - so rife with non-representational hints, yet containing so much calm identity,too"

Robert Taylor 1982

"It is a landscape of dissolution. Natapoff makes us feel both the brute structure and the lyricism of the landscape, and the panoramic sweep of its destinies."
