"The uncanny, phantasmagorical quality of Tia Pulitzer’s sculptures is induced by the bewildering fact that they appear as one would expect while at the same time belying any resemblance of reality. The resulting disorientation is in part due to their slightly less than life-size scale, which emphasizes their objectness while provoking an empathetic emotional response to their vulnerable diminutiveness." --Michael Rooks, 2008
