From “The Painting on the Wall,” by Peter Schjeldahl in the November 28, 2012 issue of The New Yorker:
[“Frozen Assets”] depicts Depression-racked New York in four tiers: skyscrapers, a homeless shelter, underground pipes, and a bank vault. It can seem a mere polemical illustration; but, given thought, it becomes a distillation of history with a carefully measured, unexhausted potency. It doesn’t tell us what to think, only what must be thought about.
