"...they are made with such care, with a deft hand and a smart eye, that they are never what you’d expect...Starting from scratch, Shapira mixes his pigments from earth, ash, and limestone...A magnolia tree blooms in front; its pink and white blossoms flutter like oversize moths, provocatively flat against the volume of the green and dusky peach trunk and branches...Every line, every shading seems deliberate and felicitous, as discerning about what beauty comprises." -Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe 2015
