Michael Hafftka: Reconciled at Georges Bergès Gallery

By Margaux Cerruti

September 30, 2015

Georges Bergès’ newly opened gallery space in the SoHo is currently showing “Reconciled,” an exhibition of paintings by Michael Hafftka.

Combining dramatic large-scale oil paintings with smaller watercolors, the exhibition at Bergès gallery takes viewers on a journey through the artist’s life. Hafftka, whose work is part of the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and of the Museum of Modern Art, among others, introduce us to his muses for this show: the women and men who came to pose in the intimacy of his studio. According to Bergès, Hafftka’s dream-like works “transcend the purely visual impact.” Indeed and as in a dream, the subjects of the paintings are almost vibrating off the canvas, reflecting the intense passion and creative chaos with which Hafftka paints, always with heart.
