Michael HafftkaMichael Hafftka, Crushed, Holocaust related painting person lying in a field
Michael Hafftka is an American Jewish artist based in Brooklyn. He is the child of Holocaust survivors. This piece, "Crushed", speaks of the devastating loss of millions of Jews during the Holocaust. Here, the figure lies in a green field, shrouded by the color of death, white. This painting acknowledges the ongoing loss and trauma felt by the survivors and their descendants. Whatever the subject matter, Hafftka’s paintings are internal visions, not literal representations of an event or idea. His paintings are the sum of his memories, intellectual ruminations, daily observations and dreams that materialise as a vision, which he is then compelled to paint. He is a painter who has continuously and courageously stood by his convictions and who, despite his family’s experience as Holocaust survivors, seeks the good in people. But precisely because of those experiences, Hafftka is well aware that good can quickly become sinister if we let our guard down. COLLECTIONS: Hafftka’s works are held in many important museums in America including the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, National Gallery of Art, Carnegie Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
