"A clearly defined, if subtle, line separates Graves' art from most of his contemporaries. He is one of the very few twentieth-century artists for whom the creation of art is an act of reverence and perhaps the only one of stature for whom it is largely a means of lovingly (but persistently) reaching upward, outward, and inward toward greater and simpler dimensions of being. Here he stands quite alone."
