Sylvia Schuster
by Joyce Korotkin
The New York Art World, January 2001

Sylvia Schuster's over scaled drawings of heads combine ink and chalk on paper, so densely worked that the paper's roughened, textured surface becomes integral to the image. Each mono-chromatic head bears generic, classical features with cool, expres-sionless, unseeing eyes; like those of impassive sculptures. As arranged here, one after the other on a single wall, they evoke as sense of eternal mourning.
