In "Critic’s Picks", Artforum reviewed Willem Oorebeek’s current exhibition on view at the Yale Union (YU). In the review, art critic Phil Taylor comments,

“These not-quite-iconoclastic abstractions are another kind of upright, solitary figure (or “monolith,” in the artist’s punning terminology) that here serve as objects of identification, desire, and power, probing print media as a persistent matrix of our era. But Oorebeek does all this with something of the jester’s cant, as he dances between the modernist twin peaks of mechanical reproduction and monochrome.”
