Manuel Neri is one of America's premier figurative sculptors.
His works on paper are brilliant and colorful expressions of emotion.
He is best known for his groundbreaking figurative works of plaster
sculpture. "Throughout his career he has continued to explore content of
the human form. Chalk-white faceless, each of his plaster figures carries
marks both of its emergence and of its erosion, intimating the change
inherent in the apparently static present." Christina Orr-Cahall, Chief
Curator, Oakland Museum of Art
