Kirk Hayes @ Sunday LES

Trompe l'oiel redux, the paintings of Kirk Hayes at Sunday LES. At first glance the works look like collage on board. After careful examination, the paintings are made completely out of paint. From the wood grain to the pieces of tape, it's all made of paint. The Trompe l'oiel factor is more of a textural nature. The wood looks like it feels like wood, not just the illusion of wood. What looks to be slap-dash is really carefully-considered paintings.
