"Ray Ciarrocchi has been exhibiting land and occasionally cityscapes in annual solo shows for many years. Although some critics have spoken of the impressionist shimmer in Ciarrocchi's paintings, and others of his luminous color fields and even of his Abstract-Expressionist roots, for me he has always been a kind of Symbolist whose work stems indirectly from the paintings of Caspar Davis Friedrich and Frederic Edwin Church".
