Like a conductor of an orchestra, Andrew Hayes transforms steel and paper into a symphony of shape and form.

Masterfully counterpointing curved and straight lines, he continues to find new arrangements that resolve the elements in satisfying and surprising ways. Paper in Hayes’ sculpture assumes the natural properties of water, taking the shape of whatever contains or borders it.

In Chevron for instance, Hayes ingeniously inserts a chevron inside an oval, utilizing the edges of the paper to create the inner shape. So simple, but with these two basic elements, the artist is able to play with our perceptions.  The inner steel form, the simple suspended plane needed to curve the paper around is slightly wider than the outer oval, so that the paper angles forward emphasizing the fluid malleability of paper as a material and the beauty inherent in edges. He counterpoints the curved lines on the oval by squaring off cutaways on the side, revealing the paper and the way the inner shape seems to be hanging impossibly from the paper. The effect gives emphasis to the contrast between the weight of steel and the ephemeral quality of book pages.
