"The small scale of Carlton Nell Jr.’s oils on wood, each a uniform 6 x 10 inches, in no way limits their impact as landscape; in fact the landscape elements are enhanced by his paring of detail to a poetic minimum."
–--Grace Glueck, New York Times, 7.16.2004
"Carlton Nell creates unusual landscape paintings that are intimate in scale and personal in spirit. Unlike the grand, panoramic landscapes of the past, Nell's small paintings focus on details of nature and compel the viewer to slow down and contemplate the often overlooked elements that make up the whole."
--Peter Baldaia, Chief Curator, Huntsville Museum of Art
