These gorgeous sculptures by Forsman, were done in sterling silver, or bronze. They were done in tiny editions of up to 7. Very little of this work is available, worldwide. Here is a small sampling of what a number of art critics have had to say about the work of this brilliant sculptor.
“Hands and eyes join together, going beyond the immediate reality and remodeling it from the inside. A return to the inner world, the original source, in order to go over the same path again. A re-creation of sensations, feelings, states of mind experienced by each and every human being. From the concrete world, her sculpture reaches out to encompass the universe, be re-cognizing and recognizing herself, watching and touching, she—the sculptress, Sairi Forsman—and we—the spectators—, are guided by her hands, breath that gives life victory over death.” Gloria Prado, Ph.D.
"The work of Sairi Forsman proves the existence of an inner world: her three-dimensional figures seem to contain something that moves them from within. Knowing what kind of power of expression is hidden in sculpture, she has been able to create shapes that are not only strong but varied and original. The apparent primitivism is actually handled with a notorious sense of modernity. The artist produces images that exteriorize a psychological complexity, where the body as means of expression is sometimes tied, entangled, enclosed in itself. Her art pieces appeal to the most vital experience of intimacy.” Alberto Ruy-Sánchez L. Director, Artes de México.
“The three dimensional work of Sairi Forsman constitutes an interesting aesthetic and artistic perception of the human being. She has already offered different contributions to the neo-expressionist trend, which is a main tradition in our culture. In my opinion, this tendency followed by the artist will allow her to consolidate a personal proposal that will transcend in the world of art.” Luis Rius Caso. Art Critic.
“It is easy to relate Sairi Forsman’s work to the aesthetic interests of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca: these sculptures are creative and done with undeniable quality. Her sculpture contains a powerful and expressive language that dominates form and fills it with meaning.” Fernando Solana Olivares. Director, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Oaxaca.
