‘Like Degas, Wald sought out the stage as a subject for her art. Like Degas’ attraction to the ballet, Wald’s interest in the theatre is about the metaphoric space of the stage. Her subject is human nature, and she approaches its painful limits through the representation of the human body in the moment of performance’
