“Sarah Haviland’s life-size figures are fluid combinations of form and nuance, geometry and gesture. Irving Sandler has described how Haviland's quasi-geometric figures exist in multiple realms: 'Sculpture and painting, volume and plane, the abstract and the figurative, the organic and the crystal-like, are played off against each other.' Thoughtful, witty, and beautifully crafted, these sculptures achieve a blend of historical and physical awareness in rethinking the female image.”
