    In spirit is understood and thanks. Rorye, I'm sorry but I do not know who is behind the name so please let me know. Matt and I are putting a list together.

    Thanks

    From Per's son via Facebook:

    Hello, My name is Christian Volquartz and I am the only living child of my father Per and mother Rebecca Volquartz.

    My fathers sudden passing on Sunday has left my mother and I completely devastated and heartbroken beyond words. My father was a brilliant man with many talents and touched many lives.

    The outpour of phone calls and visitors from all over the world has been nothing short of amazing. Per lived his life doing exactly what he loved to do. He lived his life to the fullest no matter the obstacles he faced.

    My mother and I will continue to uphold his legacy within the art community.

    A great way to acknowledge the inspiration that Per gave so freely.
