Reviews
"The creatures remind me of how I feel slightly sorry for items in a yard sale or at Goodwill, or how as a child I would whisper apologies to my stuffed animals in the morning if they fell out of my bed overnight. Harvey’s creatures are neither human nor animal. They are both recognizable and foreign, so the viewer identifies with them enough to draw forth our humanity-to empathize-all the while remaining aware of their fancifulness. We recognize ourselves in the intricate folds of flesh and curves of fingertips, in the shadowy sockets where eyes hide, squinting away the stormy dim light; yet we remain distanced enough to hope for something brighter."

-Kerry Trautman, Splat Art Magazine
"If you have ever caught yourself struggling to articulate a visually stunning dream to someone else you can most likely understand the depth of the work that Clifton Harvey produces.

-Taylor Jaskolski, TedFury.com
"The word 'pathos' comes to mind. One feels something for these poor characters. Clifton Harvey’s work is filled with feeling. Almost super saturated. But it is not maudlin. Or if it is, it is excusable by the lush and beautiful visions Harvey has created."

-David Halliday, power of h Weblog
