Selected Reviews

HOLLAND COTTER, THE NEW YORK TIMES ART REVIEW, FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1994

ON WITNESS, A MIXED MEDIA INSTALLATION AT THE BRONX MUSEUM:
"The show gets off to a nice start with Mindy Belloff's installation of dozens of tiny paintings, displayed on shelves or wall racks. Images of flowers and faux Chinese landscapes crop up, although much of the painting is a kind of minuscule version of gestural abstraction. Predominantly black-and-white, the installation has a mournful air, made literal when Ms. Belloff writes on one painting, 'I still get overwhelmed when I think about her' and the single word 'endure' on another. . . . Personal and specifically autobiographical subject matter is increasingly important in contemporary art. However obliquely, it is at the heart of Ms. Belloff's tiny paintings. . . "

"EXHIBIT OPENS WELTY WEEKEND", OCTOBER 18, 2001

"An exhibition and presentation by New York artist Mindy Belloff was scheduled to be the first of events for Welty Weekend at Mississippi University for Women. Belloff's show, 'Chapters in Transition,' is scheduled to open at 2 p.m. at MUW's Fine Arts Gallery... the Colombus show is one of four in which Belloff is participating simultaneously. In spite of the turmoil the city has faced in the last months, she currently has two shows ongoing in New York, as well as a show beginning Sunday in Spartanburg, S.C. Belloff is scheduled to discuss book arts as well as the personal nature of her work. 'I want students to know it is okay to talk about intensely personal things,' Belloff said. 'As artists we're able to transform individual experience into aesthetic objects. Because of the events of the last month, there is a feeling now more than ever for the importance of art in healing and spiritual nourishment - whether it is music, theater, dance or visual arts... New York is very fragmented now, and part of what we do is try to create a feeling of wholeness and beauty, and transform personal experience into something cathartic for the viewer,' Belloff said. The opening, presentation and reception is free and open to the public.

"MINDY BELLOFF, FEATURED ARTIST AT 'W'"
"Mindy Belloff, an established artist will have her artwork on exhibit in the gallery of the Fine Arts Building as the feature presentation during Welty Weekend activities... Belloff has participated in more than 40 art exhibitions since 1988. A Brooklyn NY native, she attended the Brooklyn Museum Art School in 1979. In 1985 she received a Bachelor of Science degree in studio art from New York University... received a Master's degree in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1989 and in 1993 gained her Master of Arts at NYU. Since then, she has taught at various colleges and non-profits... 'Ms. Belloff's work should let all our students see the possibilities that her art explores and become aware of other avenues of expression,' said Larry Feeney, show organizer. 'Whether working in an assemblage format on a wall or within a more traditional sequence such as the book, I am interested in both the visual and conceptual dialogue created,' Belloff said of her work. The exhibit will be a combination of mixed media installation and book arts."

ROCKY MOUNTAIN OUTLOOK - MICHELLE MACHULO, AUGUST 15, 2002
"PRINTING WITH A PASSION"

A trio of diverse visual artists showed off the fruits of their labours during a casual viewing at The Banff Centre, a rich mixture of painting, artist's books and print media... The New York book artist's display highlighted a limited edition array of handmade books of various sizes featuring 'personal narratives,' blending text and images. Her work combines painting, photography, sculpture and writing. Belloff's books are striking. "Broken Ground," the most powerful piece in the exhibit, is digitally printed with archival inks on Somerset Velvet. It tells the story of a break-up of a long-term relationship as well as the loss of Belloff's mother to cancer. Belloff portrays a wide range of sentiments..."
