Time Out says

Martha Wilson, artist and founder of the legendary alternative space, Franklin Furnace, serves as curator for this selection of works on paper by Sibio, whose visually dense compositions are characterized by the sort of obsessive attention to detail usually associated with self-taught, visionary artists (though Sibio herself has a BFA). Like her mother, Sibio was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and was consigned to an orphanage after her mother’s institutionalization and her father’s death. These experiences find there way into her work, which deals with society’s dispossessed: The poor, the mentally ill, the homeless and other denizens of society’s margins.
