Review by Holly Myers - L.A. Times
"...Also on view is "Embedded Histories," an exquisite exhibition of sculpture by Maddy LeMel. The shows have little in common but for mutually exceptional caliber of craftsmanship, which makes them happily complementary... LeMel works with paper, Plexiglas and thread; her touch is light and many of her pieces are so delicately constructed that a stiff breeze would likely topple them.    
The titles of several of the works suggest a political subtext, but the implications aren't readily appparent. One senses, rather, that these are objects in which a great number of things could be buried. We see keys, photographs, fragments of text, and bits of metal and wire preserved in cocoons of paper and plastic while threads dangle seductively, waiting to be unraveled."
