Helen A. Harrison from The New York Times writes “The wind also animates Mr. Zaluski’s “Blue Cube,” with the hard-edged cube mounted in a bright red arc that seems about to swallow it.”
Jaclyn J. Philips from Pulse Magazine (Dec. 2005) writes, “ Colors are another source of animation in his work. Either he goes for clean bright primaries – impossible yellows, shiny reds and polished royal blues – or he uses the metal’s natural brilliance to accept the shape of a piece; sometimes silver and gold coexist in a sculpture with equal grace, as opposed to being in conflict with each other, as is often the case. Zaluski is playful, but not childish; elegant, but not immature.”
