"In our postmodern world two types of paintings are especially difficult to bring off. Abstract art – or call it by the vogue name of the moment – usually amounts to nothing more than then pretentious slopes on the walls of Manhattan galleries. Nudes are tougher still – most painted today are either purposely revolting, immature attempts at the profundity or look as if they were meant to hang above a jacuzzi in the Playboy Mansion.
Leonid Semeiko was a master of the both forms. And off others. His combination of the versatility and depth fused in a personal style as distinctive as it was disciplined. There was nothing superficial or harried about the least of his paintings, no sense of impatience or of a hustler on the con. Every work looked inevitable. I have met a few painters I thought had significant talents. But only Semeiko possessed a dash of the genius."
