Harvey Daniels

While never being a pop-artist exactly, Harvey Daniels engagement with the banal image and its bold, bright presentation continued long into the 1970s, even though in purely formal terms the underlying disciplines of abstraction remained a determining force upon his work. And with his subsequent commitment, through the 1980s and 90s, to a full abstraction of his own, something of the reverse is true – that there remains to his statement and presentation of the entirely abstract figure, something of the cheerful take-it-or-leave it quality of his old pop images.” William Packer writing for the Harvey Daniels Retrospective at the White Gallery 2001

“Passing through and beyond the cultural planes of the Orphism of early Modernism, Daniels has -like an Orpheus of old- finally come to sing of the replenishing mystery of life; of those border regions of painterly play, or poetics, that lie at the heart of being.” Michael Tucker, in Harvey Daniels: Ten Years, University of Brighton. 1997
