Guided tour of
Sculptured Adornment:
The Jewelry of David Hayes
at the Georgia Museum of Art
by William Eiland,
Curator of the Exhibition and Director of the Museum
Tuesday, July 9 at 2:00 pm

David Hayes (1931 – 2013) spent a 60-year career in creating abstract sculptural forms, brightly painted à la Matisse, and usually resonant of organic structure. A confirmed modernist, he often experimented with materials and processes. That interest in the art of fabrication extended to his ideas of personal adornment. It, too, could be abstract in shape, novel in technique and organic in spirit. This exhibition features approximately 40 of his brooches and pendants, most left without clasps, and thus even more rudimentary of form and expressive of Hayes’ vision. The exhibition runs through July 28.

Hayes' jewelry is meant to resemble talismans of ancient traditions. The hammered surfaces bring the strength and mystery of iron shaping into the 20th century. Both naturalistic and abstracted elements convey an other-worldly aesthetic.
