michael tolloy’s sculptures are hybrid creatures of a very special kind. on one hand they are committed to art historical tradition, on the other hand they formulate a tentative, yet purposeful, consistent approach to a contemporary image of man, in terms of content, form and technology in the use of traditional sculptural material. – christiane dressler
