Catalogue Note

“Human mood and movement are reduced to a geometric essence that is itself caught in an unclassical, all-too-human process of fluctuation, open to the viewer’s perception and speculation.” Roberta Smith, “Joel Shapiro Looks Back, Differently,” in: The New York Times, 31 March 1995, online
