MILESTONE IN CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN
The New Industrial Parks near Irvine, California
“Baltz's pictures are object-images, physical presences
themselves, not representations of things. Although they are signs of
real-world objects, they are also independent, archetypal forms...they
have an inevitability, an inscrutability, a permanence, even a
stateliness. His images demand more than contemplation and delectation:
they demand reckoning.”
Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, Whitney Museum of American Art
