“Christian Philip Zimmerman creates intensely poetic and symbolically redolent sculptures. In works such as Compass and Sentence, [he] embraces the co-existence of death and beauty. Head is a tour de force of assemblage, combining found objects into an hallucinatory psychosexual whirl.” – Lawrence Rinder

“The craftsmanship is as good as any you are ever going to find among contemporary painters. As a painted surface, it’s pretty unbelievable. The detail work he was able to bring to the fore is in the tradition of 15th or 16th century Renaissance painting.” – Steven Rosen, Director, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art
