Hafif is part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art located in New York City, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Hafif reminds of the recently deceased artist Ellsworth Kelly. Both artists show how fun abstract painting can be. A few organic shapes and bold strong color is always appreciated by the eyes!
Her work that focuses on single colors are very interesting when viewed from a distance. The viewer has the idea of being in a paint store and checking which kinds of paint catch the eye from a distance.
