What Happens When Pretend Politicians Pretend to Be Terrorists, 2011

Description


The Feldman Gallery will exhibit new works by the Australian painter Cameron Hayes who uses fantastical imagery to chronicle our contemporary times in the tradition of Hieronymus Bosch. Hayes’ compositions combine absurd scenarios and cartoon figures with formal devices, including patterning and color choices, that unify the miniaturized details covering the large canvases. Each painting is accompanied by a short text in a faux simplistic style that matches the tone of the storybook-like images. With acid wit, Hayes’ visually-striking narratives tell tales of human folly and brutality.
