'Hyde's work, which is anything but subtle regarding the commodification of Indian culture, is explosive, colorful, multilayered and, for all the painterly strokes and shocking hues, surprisingly deliberate. Placing icons of popluar culture into frameworks where the eye expects to see a familiar Anglo lexicon, Hyde asserts an agressive, proactive role for Native American identity in the contemporary world.' -Don't Mess With Frank Hyde: Talking The Nitty-Gritty of Indian Art, by Zane Fischer, SantaFe Reporter
