"Sarah Sze's extraordinary work is a rare convergence of beauty, passion, energy, and intelligence." —Pauline Willis, Director, American Federation of the Arts

"Sarah Sze's sculptures are models of how we think – or don't or don't often think enough – about time and space. In that sense they are everything a sculpture can and should hope to be." —Nick Compton, Wallpaper

"Sze's work routinely refuses the viewer the safety of a single viewpoint. Sculpture that's insistently on the brink, it seesaws constantly from art to life, and back again." —Christian Viveros Faune, Village Voice

"Sarah Sze's impossibly intricate installation pieces are wonders of balance and imagination."—Christian Viveros Faune, City A.M.
