"When I look at Miriam's work, the words that come to mind are abundance and devotion..." -Milton Glaser.
"Wosk's strategy is seduction. Abundance is her medium. She approaches even something as grandiose as the cosmos itself on these intimate terms, identifying its vast complexity in the minutest of details. She invites us to consider, in her artwork, what both science and spirituality teach us: that everything is interdependent, that the simple beating of a butterfly's wing sends ripples of energy throughout the universe..." -Peter Clothier.
