    ...Aizenberg's paintings set before us a true cluster of silence, that feeling of profound silence that also emanates from some of De Chirico's paintings in his Metaphysical period. A strange suspension of all noise that comes from the timelessness in which the artist places things or, better still, a level of time where the ancient and the modern converge. The metaphysical silence of things that have lived beyond the human for a great while and are now returned to man...
