" Is there a place for sculpture between sculptures? Is it conceivable to manage a third way between non-representative, non-illusionist sculptures and figurative ones? Between ‘specific objects’ that distinguish themselves by material clarity, through the space they create and objects that build psychological and perceptual space through trompe l’oeil, realism and illusion? Is there salvation between Donald Judd and Duane Hanson? Is there an alternative between radical conceptual practice articulating criticism in visual culture and a possible embrace of a skillful hand animated by subject matter and able to give a relevant, and no less radical, form to humanism? In a peculiar way, and staying at a safe distance from the post modern, post appropriation, ironic paths opened up by the like of Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, and Haim Steinbach, Hannah Greely’s work struggles with such questions. Her sculptures carry an objecthood, far from the so-called Los Angeles ‘finish fetish’ and fascination with craftsmanship, that instead conveys a sense of frailty and aesthetic modesty bearing the evidence of her own hand."  - Philippe Vergne
