Catalogue Note

"Depending upon the viewer's movement, Shapiro's sculpture shifts from the abstract to the figurative, from hyperkinetic flight to collapse, from purely formal to deeply emotional—like a kaleidoscope whose pieces promise, but finally refuse, to settle into resolution."
Klaus Kertess in Exh. Cat., New York, The Pace Gallery, Joel Shapiro New Wood and Bronze Sculpture, 1998, p. 6
