Stanley William Hayter
To whoever studies the prints of Hector Saunier it is clear that this is an artist who has mastered his craft. His work with the most demanding of techniques, the burin, shows at once that he has perfected a language in which he speaks clearly, unhampered by the normal restraints of the medium. But his approach to the medium, and what he has to say in it, is so unusual that study is really called for.

Perhaps another aspect of his work is still more important. His research in the use of colour in total saturation, the interpenetration of graduated fields of colour not only creates a space of the imagination beyond our normal experience but involves us in another dimension of the consciousness of colour in itself – making us aware of the unsuspected amplitude of one of the most joyful aspects of life.
