"Over the past twenty years Willyum Rowe has created works grounded in photography that combine drama and burlesque with a sensitive and intelligent equilibrium. While the conventions of photography underscore the majority of his work it is best to follow the links between the tragedy and comedy of Buster Keaton's adventures, the bite of Lenny Bruce's humor, the original genius of Howard Finster's folk art creations and the gender blending of Sylvester's night club persona, than to track Rowe's achievements in relation to the history of photography." — Jeffrey Hoone
