Vanda Harvey (1957 – 2015)
“Vanda’s expression defies facile interpretation; she chooses instead to explore the interplay of colors, of borders and of background and foreground. Vanda repeatedly juxtaposes black on color, mixes signs with images, graphics with painting and constantly challenges the viewer to delineate boundaries. There is a distinctly original and subversive aspect to her use of black symbols on primary colors; the repetition is methodical, as though she were laying foundations, reciting one letter at a time the alphabet of a new language.”

Eugene Kohn (1991)
