“Copskey’s sculpture are modeled with admirable sensitivity—every one of them would seem to be an  accurate likeness of its subject. Some of his heads remind me of Malvina Hoffman, a gifted pupil of Rodin and major sculptor herself.” —R.P. Harriss, News American, 1982

“From time immemorial, sculpture has been revered as one of the noblest of the arts. Today, there continues to be a need for this magnificent and enduring art form.” —Aaron Canter, 1990

“A physically very dominant piece is the life-size white plaster “Lynn” by Robert Copskey. The subject is a man in a fully rendered wheelchair. The man’s legs seem withered. He is a black man, a fact that one realizes can compound his difficulties.  But Mr. Copskey has managed to steer clear of making this an all-out appeal for sympathy. The material, white plaster, makes the piece look very vital, and the wheelchair might truly be a chariot.” —William Zimmer, New York Times, 1991
