Andrew Hayes: Passages
September 1 - October 4, 2015
Reception for the artist: Saturday, September 12, 5:30 - 7:30pm
Andrew Hayes at Seager Gray Gallery Mill Valley CA

Imagine sculptures made of steel combined with perfectly aligned sections of book pages. That would be the work of Andrew Hayes. His steel forms with their meticulous attention to detail could be seen as maquettes for formalist monumental works - Tony Smith or Fletcher Benton come to mind, sculptors who took pride both in the formal “rightness” of the work and in the perfection of their skills.  You will not see a weld or an unfinished edge in Hayes’ sculpture and the finishes are finely milled or feathered and beautifully polished.  These perfected forms are orchestrated to hold various thicknesses of book pages taken from the text block of dictionaries, bibles, encyclopedias or whatever books most serve his purpose.  The critical tension between the ephemeral nature of paper and the durability of steel combines with the fascination of content as material in these endlessly engaging works of art.
