  • Catalogue Essay

    “I think shadow – for me it’s a remarkable thing to say – but a shadow to me seems more solid than the object it is a shadow of. Isn’t that funny? It’s very important. That’s where the mystery is, you see. And it’s wonderful… It gives you a better definition and it gives you a fourth dimension.”
    Louise Nevelson
