The Art Of Whitfield Lovell: Whispers From The Walls (Pomegranate Catalog)
From the Publisher
"In Whispers From the Walls, it's almost as if Whitfield has taken the wooden walls of an old house and soaked them with some special emulsion until memories locked inside floated to the surface. An amazing achievement to release emotion from the dry evidence of history." Tom Otterness, artist.
"The narrative power of Whitfield Lovell's work is illuminated via beauty and wit, but not without the conflict,pain,and contradiction that make his impassioned imagery of interpersonal relationships and history all the more true to life." Lorna Simpson, Artist.
"There is a dignity to Lovell's[art] which makes it all the more compelling. There is a lovely democratic feel to his work, the sense that it is for all of us to see."
- John Yau, Art Critic,from his catalogue essay for"The Bronx Celebrates Whitfield Lovell", 1993
"Whitfield Lovell's work has a rare place in our world.It has the power and the tenderness to go to the heart and resonate there. It is unforgettable." Mary Frank, Artist.
