    Pre-Lot Text

    If you put your mind at the disposal of Mr. Pernice's art, much can happen; if not, not much. In addition to its free-ranging subject matter, its saving graces consist of an ineffable sincerity and a highly specific, oddly tender feeling for materials.
    (R. Smith, Manfred Pernice, New York Times, 2001)
