Yet they are also affectingly humorous, endowed with qualities that we recognize immediately as inherent to the human condition. During his early career, Havard was known as one of the leading practitioners of “Abstract Illusionism.” In the late 1980’s he made a dramatic shift to a unique brand of figuration that recalls art brut in its intentional naïveté of line and rigorous and textual manipulation of paints. As art critic Tony Cavanaugh has written, “Havard figures are raw and elemental. In their utter nakedness of guile and anatomical economy they resemble the works of very young children, albeit with an in innate sophistication that can only belong to a mature artist in complete control of his powers.” “James Havard”, 2006 Editor, Laura Addison “From the quasi-Pop work to his invention of Abstract Illusionism to his now profound exploration in to the existential portrayal of the soul of his ancestors and their world, his art is beautiful and true. The truth comes from his uncanny ability to observe both the known and the unknowable and bring them forth visually through his personal filter. His technical virtuosity is awesome, and in his hands paint brings life to the spirits of the ancients he feels so close to in New Mexico, the ones he portrays with such mystery and passion”. “James Havard”, 2006, Dianne Vanderlip, Polly and Mark Addison Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Denver Art Museum
