“Overall, her navigation of the borders between visual art and literature, her ability to mediate between the masculinist impulse of the black arts movement and feminism, as well as her juxtaposition of European/mainstream art and the aesthetics and politics of minority art, provides a constant argument for the folk aesthetic, which she positions as the ‘fecunding matrix’ that allows artists to traverse the shifting slopes of identity politics and avant-garde asthetics that comprise the postmodernist art of the 1990s.”—Novel, A Forum on Fiction
