“T.J. Mabrey has for years made evocative sculptures in the age-old medium of marble and proved herself adept at the art of direct carving. Her latest work at the Taos Center for the Arts demonstrate that she can bring a sorcerer's touch to the ephemeral ways of paper, combining poetry and chance and abstract origami in a series of mind-bending constructions reminiscent of the playful seriousness of the Dada painter-poets of a century ago.”
