HUFFINGTON POST / ARTIFACTS OF DEEP EMOTION: THE ART OF BOBACK EMAD
"Emad identifies with the steel structures of Mark di Suvero and Alexander Calder, but unlike the dynamic abstractions of these great predecessors, Emad’s work has a fragmentary and fragile presence. In a recent aluminum sculpture, Foresight, the shape of a sphere hinges apart as if barely able to maintain its original form. Pieces fit but never hold still. Much like life, Emad’s work asks the viewer to consider serious questions about solidity and absolutes. His art tells us that nothing is certain, nothing is whole."
