Kirk Hayes Sculpture For The Capriciousness Of Life 2008 oil on panel (trompe-l'oeil) 48" x 32" zsandh.com Larry McMurtry meets Philip Guston in Ft. Worth. That was my first impression of Hayes work. Upon further review, this Texas artist has a lot more going on than that cursory description. Like other Texans, Terry Allen and James Surls, Hayes is dancing to his own tune. His collage paintings fuse an obscure narrative with blunt abstract forms to give the viewer an unsettling look inside his mind.
