“Now Where Are We?” 83 in. X 72 in. acrylic on canvas 2012
“Hafftka is a humanist in the line of Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt and Myer Shapiro — his are wild notations in an inescapable flesh and fire. There is in him Soutine and Bacon, a space opened for the scream of creatures; He is not afraid of pathos and the nightmares of Goya.”
—David Shapiro, author of Mondrian’s Flowers, Jasper Johns
