Biography

Throughout his sixty-year-artistic-career Hayes 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.
