What Pryce creates is something personal, miniature, like something you can hold in your hands. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in my life […] Her art comes at a time when we’re all wondering where cinema is headed. She is looking back and forth, and forward at the same time. Just as 19th-century magic lanterns presaged the cinema to follow, so Pryce's 21st-century work presages a new, alternative view of a post-cinema cinema. She is unique.  Robert Koehlerl
