Untitled, Acrylic on laser printed photograph, 21
Untitled, Acrylic on laser printed photograph, 21 x 30.5 2009-12 This piece was very difficult to engage with and I have worked on it from 2009-12. It is currently finished. It was hard for me because the woman’s facial expression underneath my drawing and painting interruptions depicts deep pain and anguish. I wanted to conceal her identity but still capture the emotion behind her expression.

"Janie Bryant" 24 x 32 in. Oil on Linen. I was sitting at a lecture at LACMA about the textiles of Elsa Schiaparellit and Coco chanel and how they influenced the paintings of Matisse . I was surrounded by the most beautifully dressed, highly curated women of the costume council. I am fascinated by textures and colors as a language within painting. I wondered, while sitting there, what it would be like to get the most highly articulate people in the language of fashion -- the stylists,the creative directors, the costume designers-- to style themselves and sit for their portrait. This is Janie Bryant, the costume designer for MadMen. She wore white gloves, and I painted in a cigarette for good measure. http://www.kimberlybrooks.com

“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

“Tash ‘n’ Nose” is one of several names I
“Tash ‘n’ Nose” is one of several names I’ve come across for the classic “groucho-style” gimmick specs. Aside from just being a fan of this specific gimmick, I look to this novelty as a transformative tool. Masks and disguises play a large part in my work, thematically and formally. I strive towards a slow reveal for the viewer. Strip tease. This work is titled Tash ‘n’ Nose. http://www.fredericksfreisergallery.com/exhibitions/past/overstreet_13/image_09.html copyright Baker Overstreet, courtesy of Fredericks & Freiser
