David Hayes at Burgess Modern + Contemporary
David Hayes with Burgess Modern + Contemporary at Hamptons Fine Art Fair 2022.
American modern master David Hayes created graceful sculptures abstracted from organic forms over an artistic career that spanned six decades. His monumental outdoor sculptures contemplate the relationship between a work of art and the environment it occupies and show the influence of teacher David Smith and friend Alexander Calder.
He has had over 400 exhibitions and is included in over 100 institutional collections including that of The Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York; the Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan; the Snite Museum of Art; and The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Connecticut. In 2007, he was conferred an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by Albertus Magnus College, his wife's alma mater.
In 2021, Hayes' work and grounds were the subject of an hour-long television broadcast shown on some 200 PBS stations nationwide produced by Legacy List with Matt Paxton.
