Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
Alexander Hayden's artist statement is a lot. There is a lot being stated, but it's poetically constructed, compliments his work, and expresses his intent, flawlessly. Alexander writes,
"My work currently centers on themes of honesty & withheld truth, the malleability of identity, aggression, the relationship of consciousness and environment, and finding peace in indifference. I use the figure to analyze the disparate, conflicting, and often harsh mental & emotional processes we experience in the progression of our lives. These melodies are laced with more intimate content based on the experiences of my personal life.
Other major themes are the inaccuracy of communication & perception, and an emphasis on direct personal experience. Addressing this, I allow ambiguous emotion and imagery to show in the work, leaving each piece unhindered by my definition, and open to the viewer's".
I cannot express how much I like his 'Panicburn No. 1' charcoal drawing. What a beautiful and expressive image. There is a sensuality that persists throughout his work, that is evident in this piece. His art is available to purchase on www.saatchiart.com/alexanderhayden.
Art isn't purchased at big-box stores. This blog is for collectors like me, who collect on a budget.
