Saul Steinberg,

Reichek invented his own ritual --a form of graphic liturgy of great beauty and intelligence.  We can find temporary salvation by seeing and especially experiencing Reichek's work.

Russell Edson, Poet*

Reichek's work is like a written language from another planet, with all the suggestiveness of poetry written in English.  On this planet they're called paintings and drawings, but I'm sure someplace these works would be considered texts. One feels that perhaps behind them is a complete culture. 
                                                                                                                           
 *Russell  Edson
born in Connecticut in 1935,  Considered by many America's  foremost writer of prose poetry.
