Tributaries: Andrew Hayes
December 14th, 2013 - March 2nd 2014
The rigidity of metal meets the fragility of paper in Andrew Hayes’ paradoxical sculpture. Of his unique combination of books and steel, Hayes says, “The pages allow me to achieve form, surface, and texture that are appealing to me. The book as an object is full of fact and story. I take my sensory appreciation for the book as a material and employ the use of metal to create a new form, and hopefully a new story.” Hayes, who recently completed a fellowship at the Penland School of Crafts, is based in Asheville, North Carlolina.
