(Tom) wanted to reach people in a different way. It was quite different to the heaviness and darkness of the New Zealand art at the time. But there was seriousness beneath the humour.
– Director Shirley Horrocks, in a 20 August 2015 Stuff interview
..a very watchable immersion into this complex man and his work ... a highly informative record of the life of an artist deserving far more attention (even now) than he has had.
– Andrew Paul Wood, on website EyeContact, 21 September 2015
Tom believed that great art did not have to be made or enjoyed in Paris or London. He passionately believed in art as an intellectual joy that occurred first in the mind, and was more interested in ideas than brushstrokes.
– Dita De Boni, in an NZ Herald obituary of Tom Kreisler, 12 April 2002
