„Moosbrugger works in series, exploring an idea, image, or allegorical reference through a number of related pieces that provide differing approaches. A continuing theme is the clkose connection to nature, often through abstraction or the radical reduction of an idea. By 1984, she had moved to three-dimensional expression in sculpture and installations in wood, iron, concrete, Raku ceramic, stone, and metal. She considers herself a "materialist", meaning that the materials she chooses and the techniques she uses are essential to her work." 

Ursula Neuman, curator Museum of Arts & Design, New York, in July 2007.
