'a compelling collection of Ralph’s oeuvre, spanning 60 years in ink adventures. You really see the progress of his development: early work has a rugged, drab style, with many nods to André François, whilst later work has the impact of a guillotine. Jackson Pollock and Francis Bacon comes easily to mind in these wild, expressionistic swipes – the grotesque was never so joyful. ' - Buzz Magazine
