In his essay Ashley notes: "What scale in painting is really about is the relationship of all the painting’s components - what is depicted, material, color, line, stroke, etc., but also the subject and content of the painting - to the surface and the size of the painting: an integrated, holistic entity that, in addition to its own actual size, can suggest grandness or intimacy, or something in between and appropriate to the painting's subject... Schor's paintings may be small in size, but the scale of her work is ambitious and generous."
Culture Monster's Christopher Knight reviews Mira Schor paintings at CB1 Gallery. Knight writes "Language is a common image, especially in the earlier work, in which words such as "lack," "trace," "sign" and "silence" meditate on the range of qualities a painted object can and cannot accommodate."
Minelli writes: "For Schor, the surface of her paintings is a skin. Or to borrow a Lacanian phrase, a 'stadium' upon which subjectivity comes to be written by an ever-shifting series of conscious and unconscious events. And it is upon this public surface/space/body where pre-linguistic meaning in other words, affect meets the signifier head on."
