Lawrence Fine Art

Name : David Hayes
Biography :

 Throughout his sixty-year-artistic-career Hayes (1931-2013) created sculptural forms abstracted from organic forms encountered in daily life. His sculptures have affinities to Alexander Calder's playful stabiles (Hayes met Calder in Paris) and to the shapes and colors of Matisse's late paper cutouts. Hayes works are firmly rooted in Modern artists' interests in industrial materials and in commercial fabrication processes. His work is in more than 70 museum collections.

Beginning in the early 1980s and continuing through the 1990s, Hayes painted a series of abstracted landscapes inspired by the gently rolling hills of his Coventry, CT home. Like his sculptures, they borrow from Matisse's cutouts and Calder's mobiles but with an aesthetic all their own. They have never been seen before.
