"Mehaffy’s whittling away at the visage, until it is little more than features - with yeux clos, eyes that have closed upon this world - is not unlike the ghostly masks favored by the Symbolists - and, like the figures of Alberto Giacometti, too. In the end, it is perhaps courage which is often
celebrated in the work of both of these artists."
