"Spears' hand is meticulous and frequently exquisite....an unwavering eye for detail that dominates her poems and her drawings...she has learned the surgeon's skill of cold-bloodedly dealing with the facts of mortality as a technical problem."
"Her vision, though disturbing, is not bleak or aggressive, or informed by the need to state an overall social policy...not a militant statement, but an expression of her archaic respect for life." Visual Arts News
"I burst into
tears in the middle of the exhibition. It was as if a hand closed around
my heart." Bengt Anderberg, Expressen, Stockholm
