About

Miles McEnery Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings by James Hayward, at 525 West 22nd Street. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, featuring an essay by Frances Colpitt.

James Hayward’s heavy impasto style and gestural, arcing brushstrokes give his paintings a wonderfully tactile appeal. The relationship between weight and color is depicted as light hits the varied depths of the brushstroke, while the role of texture is explored in each movement lifting up towards the edge of the canvas.

This exhibition features works created between 2001 and 2018, many from his Abstract Diptychs and Chromachords series. The Abstract Diptychs are one-color paintings consisting of pure, un-mixed, and vigorously painted colors while the Chromachords are four-color works, in which the artist blends the various pigments directly on the canvas. Hayward himself explains that “the idea was four pure colors, worked together on the surface of the painting to become a fith, unknown color,” resulting in compositions that are visually intriguing and sublimely dynamic.

Hayward’s belief in the relationship between art and viewer is clearly illustrated in these paintings, as each work serves to create a unique reaction to bold color, strong texture, and fervent movement. As Colpitt comments, “In the ‘neutral’ Chromachords and Abstract Diptychs...the viewer is challenged to conceive of the overall color from its slyly revealed components. Hayward’s sophisticated sense of color has never been so boldly on display.”
