"The more bullying Eisenman’s jokes and the more retrouvé her aesthetics – that is, the more she seems like the riot grrrl Currin – the less affecting her efforts. Where she eschews the traps and tropes of the 1990s, both the irony and the traditionalism, the multiculturalism and the commercialism, she seems more likely to transcend the cheaper thrills of her cohort."
