New York media about Szyfter‘s artwork:
COURIER LIFE, July 2007: “The city of female muse. For her debut she has produced a series of works (…) dedicated to women and New York City. (…) Her works are very feminine. She transforms bodies and faces- trying to show the spirit and the mind of the person.”
NEW DAILY, May 2007: Ann Rudek: “Agnes in the City. She paints with a great strength and confidence.(…) The spectator hits a beautiful, clear, expressive bold color. Her works thanks to the extraordinary atmosphere and optimism positively influence and become a nice view to the eye.”
GALLERY& STUDIO, March 2011: New York art critic Maurice Taplinger classified Szyfter as “a post – feminist in a different medium but a similar manner to Madonna and Lady Gaga. … In that her art seeks to empower women through glamour as opposed to politics (…). Her subjects are flamboyant as seen in her Post-Pop Neo-Art-Nouveau paintings such as Girl With A Pearl Earring (…).‘‘
GALLERY & STUDIO, March 2012: New York art critic Maureen Flynn: “The Last Supper by Szyfter outdoes even Andy Warhol’s late version of that great subject for Szyfter’s audacious inclusion of likenesses of Bill Clinton and Bill Gates at the table.”
