“Sheba Sharrow′s disturbing evocations…link her sensibility to German Expressionism, yet the sensual refinement of her surfaces and the rich literary and historical resonances of her imagery connect her to the romantic-historic tradition of Turner or Ryder…
adding up to a despairing view of the world relieved only by beauty…(and) her brilliant command of the human form.”

Amy Fine Collins, Art in America

“These works disturb through their content and seduce through their formal rigor… I see Sharrow the artist in the company of Rembrandt, Goya, Kollwitz, Beckman and Orozco— all clear-eyed humanists
… her figuration is neither sentimental nor illustrative
…her art is knowledge at the service of emotions, and these are noble: indignation and compassion.”

Alejandro Anreus, former curator Jersey City Museum

“Ms. Sharrow paints with a heavy heart and a firm hand. Her emotive images possess seductively beautiful layered surfaces while their content conveys a profound sense of soul-searching…
she deserves the kind of recognition enjoyed by such other neo-expressionist artists as Joan Snyder or Leon Golub.”

Fred Adelson, The New York Times
