"The faces in Wagschal's small paintings, in a Spartan range of earth tones, function less as portraits than as overpowering physical maps. Their wrinkled cheeks and fleshy chins trace those experiences that unite us all…."

"She eschews, especially in the all-important faces, slick and bravura sensuality in favour of belaboured patches of low-value tones. These sections, intentionally lacking the quality of visual effortlessness, call attention to the quantifiable physicality of the work by which this particular artist paints. They are compellingly touching evidence of one human being reaching out sympathetically to another, trying to connect with those private yet universal truths that are all we have to comfort us in the dark."

Brian Foss, Marion Wagschal New Painting
