About the Artist

James L Hayes is an Irish contemporary visual artist whose current work and research practice reinvests a modernist sculptural language. Recent projects use methods of artistic production as a means by which to interrogate the boundaries between artist, artisan and art object in order to draw out the often-incongruous relationships between finished art objects, and the industrial aspects of the processes that produce these revered objects.

This research-based practice has an art historical agenda, referencing key creative influences such as the celebrated Welsh artist Barry Flanagan.

Broader research interests range from contemporary interpretations of sculptural legacies, to site-specific interventionist works that draw from traces of significant pasts and histories.

Previous works have drawn on diverse subjects such as industrial archaeology, other environmental concerns and social and economic conflicts. Hayes predominantly sculptural practice also encompasses multi- disciplinary and sensory-based sculptural installations. He exhibits his works nationally and internationally whilst also developing large-scale public art commissions and site-specific projects.

He has been awarded numerous awards and grants to support his practice and he also invests heavily in the University educational sector and work across the UK & US higher education system frequently taking part in visiting lecturing series and international cross collegial projects and events. Hayes is a graduate of Limerick School of Art & Design, De Montfort University Leicester and the University of London. He is the principal lecturer in Sculpture at the Crawford College of Art in Cork, Ireland.

 The MART Gallery, Rathmines

27 October – 12 November, 2016

Ali Kirby and Cliodhna Timoney will both present new work in this upcoming two person exhibition selected through the Fire Station Artist’s Studios Residency Award 2016.

Kirby’s sculptural interventions will respond directly to the architecture transforming the physical space of the front gallery with large scale works that draw our attention to colour, scale and presence, while Timoney will exhibit a family of objects manifested through a process of trial and error. These objects relate to the encounter between the manufactured and the handmade and the interaction between body and material. This family will materialize as an installation in MART’s back gallery. This exhibition will be accompanied by a text by Lucy Elvis.
