Note: Jack Tworkov described Resnick's oeuvre as relating much to Soutine: (both Resnick's and Soutine's) passion is not for the picture as a thing, but for the creative process itself. It is meant to have impact on the soul. It is the unpremeditated form the picture takes as a result of the struggle to express motive, to capture the sequence of ephemeral experience, the tragic anxiety, the constant brooding over being and not-being, over bloom and decay, over life and death. It is not technique, but process". -Askart
