The Gallery at WREN kicks off September with the opening reception of Intersecting Mysteries, on Friday, October 4 from 5-7pm. The exhibit features new paintings by Tracy Hayes, whose abstract work explores the role of the individual voice in a complex world full of chaos and contradictions.

“These paintings are my attempt to attempt to comprehend the contradictions and stressors of daily life,” Hayes says. “Each piece is a way to chart a path.”

ARTIST STATEMENT

My current work explores connections and the emergence of patterns in the intersections of lines, textures and values in my attempt to comprehend the contradictions and stressors of daily life. In an increasingly complicated, varied and noisy environment, I am concerned with role of individual voice. Individual efforts struggling to reach out and chart a path, buffeted and twisted by external forces; these are the catalyst.

Each piece starts with a version of the same mark, which is expanded with various mixed media (acrylic, ink, pastel, charcoal, graphite etc).  I see lines, patterns, spaces and more lines, and I just want to push and pull, blur and sharpen those until I find the unique rhythm of the piece.
