Reviewing Egbert's work in Art in America, Eileen Myles notes, "Sally Egbert's oil paintings are as hypnotic as aquariums...(her) chief concern seems to be pinpointing distinctions to name the moment in color and space." Glenn O’Brien, in a catalog essay, describes Egbert's work: "These magical tableaux conjure dream states outside of experience and history, but they seem to evoke not what has happened, but what will happen--a balance of a state that we have experienced and one that we are moving toward with the attraction of sublime unknowns."
