Andrew Hayes: Volumes

February 1 - March 2, 2014

Andrew Hayes at Seager Gray Gallery showing Placer and altered book and steel sculpture.

Andrew Hayes creates sculpture combining book pages with exquisite steel structures. The scale of the work is small, but suggests an epic size in their smooth lines and finely milled finishes. Hayes uses the look of the text, the gilt and colored edges of paper and the aesthetics of stacked pages from books to create his sculpture. The critical tension between the ephemeral and durable is simply and elegantly presented. A turning point in Hayes’ career came during his studies with artist Doug Beube. “A central feature of Beube's teaching about altered-book sculpture is his emphasis on addressing the book formally, as an object to be materially transformed rather than a text to be interpreted, and this premise has fit well with Andrew's own formal concerns: proportion, scale, texture, color, material, attachment”. (from the essay by Wes Stitt from the catalog).
