Vertical Motif


The Vertical Motif designation encompasses Hayes' more iconic sculptures. These works are characterized by engaging, often brightly colored shapes welded together to produce sizable, dynamic sculptures. His curvilinear shapes and vibrant hues engender a stark contrast between composition and material, and derive their silhouettes from the human figure. One can pinpoint similarities between this series and the Sentinels considering the human affectations of both, however, the figures of the Vertical series sacrifice drama in lieu of a more lighthearted mentality.
