“Ceramic sculptures by Los Angeles artist Galia Linn hold one’s attention through a rather conflicting combination of opposites: strength and fragility, multi-colored glazes and monochrome natural clay, and the feminine and masculine.”

Edward Goldman, KCRW Art Talk.

“Galia Linn is a ceramicist, but her affecting, often large-scale sculptures have evolved to defy conventions of the clay genre. With a deep appreciation for the poignant humanist allegorical potential of the clay vessel as a metaphor for the human body — lush, scarred, vulnerable, violated, stalwart, enduring and beautiful.”
