Kildare based artist Simon Hayes works primarily in steel. Pushing the limits of what he can do with steel in a Man vs. Steel relationship which serves him to push forward. Flexing that tenuous relationship is where the soul and drama come through in the work.
But there is always more. The visual language begins with a thoughtful inspiration he then questions, advances to sketching the form, and then letting it flow and incubate for however long it needs until the steel and artist work it out in the studio.
Scale, tools, flow and form drive him to the conclusions you see in the private and public installations you see today.
