"The reproductions are superb, and enable us to fully appreciate Barberena’s achievement. No expense seems to have been spared in the publication process, for while many of the pieces are in black and white, we have what color there is in all its sharpness and expressive power. In general we may say that Barberena is a wonderful printmaker of bold line and stirking concept—ranking well, I believe, with other Chicago and national Latino artists (Artemio Rodríguez of California comes most to mind), and with the entire graphic tradition as I, at least, have come to know." —Marc Zimmerman
"An artistic flow runs through Barberena’sveins, while indignation and longing spill. A whole pulsating system is captured in ink and reliefs on paper. Barberena: a young printmaker with the afflictions of an old man. The form in his prints is sublime. When drawing the curtain you can see many days of work with the chisel, the roulette and the etching press. Perhaps, he’s been tinkering relentlessly with the gouge in the matrix for a decade, but before that, he’d been playing with pen, paper and ink. Barberena has vigorously experimented with other mediums, but I believe it’s in printmaking where his voice has reached the highest note." —Franky Piña
