From the review:

Each of these three potential readings—the work as dream or vision, potent but mysterious; the work as political vision without apparent call to action; and the work as self-portrait of an obscured self—is in tension with the others, and each layer simultaneously invites and resists other layers of meaning and interpretation to create a deeply ambiguous image. That these layers resist resolution is at once unsettling and charged and does not detract from but contributes to the work’s power.
