"Full scale brutalism unleashed - The most brilliant architectural installation I’ve ever seen! I kid you not - After decades of being drug around to architectural Biennials as a kid, in the 80s the Venice Biennial and the San Francisco Biennial in Fort Mason - Daniela Soberman is better!"
"Smart materiality, funny, modular, not precious, & [i love] their poke at the male art historical canon."
"a little bit playful and a little bit grim"
"it's like 3d Joan Mitchell" "Heavy and light, solid and perforated, intimate marks on a grand scale."
"Her architectonic Yugoslavian brutalism scorched in the hot white California sunshine - with 10x the slipped smart details of Scarpa and the baroque madness of Gaudi!"
"It’s thrilling to see a piece of this complexity and size"
"The scale is amazing! Fearless!!"
"Amazing, unique, unexpected, spectacular!"
"It's like punk rock Frank Ghery"
"This is astounding work!"
"Daniela purposefully engaged simplistic and barbarian brutalist ceramic pieces she often discarded confronting the supremacy of the object while creating in a fury. She made ceramic interlocking pieces with a looseness and a levity and yet also many levels of meaning in the markings and letterings. Her mark makings, at times Twombly like are, are often shrouded in white...memory...thinking back with time's glow. She gains line and coloration from glaze collecting in the hacked out marks. Ms. Soberman has moved to interlocking styrofoam and other materials and scaled up to 8', indeed many of her works read well as maquettes for larger pieces and yet are beautiful in their own scale."
