Cassandra Neyenesch writes in The Brooklyn Rail that ”Tribe uses constructed steel to make sculptures that have a feeling of totemic obsession and pre-industrial roughness… Tribe started out as a boilermaker but unlike Julian Schnabel, whose scabrous, dinner-plate encrusted surfaces are a kind of vengeful meditation on his days of waiting tables, [Tribe’s] early experience seems to have instilled in him only the most ardent feelings for steel and its manipulation. He uses the medium easily, as if it were pliant and naturally sloppy.”
