"[Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush] is able to convey pivotal moments in which the artist made eloquent changes to her visual vocabulary without ever losing her essence or voice." – Maria Brito, Huffington Post

"Nina Chanel Abney overpowers the limits placed on artists by identity politics." – Chris Vitiello, IndyWeek

"Abney opts to bombard the viewer from the outset with images, words, numbers and colors that have been collaged in a manner that’s both coherent and overwhelming." – Nina Wilder, Duke Chronicle
