Press Release

Exhibition held concurrently with Marcia Roberts | 2013

From Mindy Alper’s deep oceans of emotional & psychological content, flow stunningly personal & hauntingly realistic sculptures. Alper’s works do much of the talking for the many things she cannot or does not say through words. Coexisting in the remarkably intimate sculptures, whose faces emote heavy or tranquil feelings, are often subtle flickers of triumphant colors or delicate movements of flight. Though darkness can be said to be the source from which her works begin, beauty is where her work ultimately delivers us.
