Screen Sculpture, No. 20
(1931 - 2013)
North America, America
Medium and Support:
Painted, welded steel
On loan from David Hayes, Jr.
Outside of Quick Center for the Arts
This abstract sculpture is part of sculptor David Hayes’ "Screen Series," which he began in the 1970s. As the artist writes, “The interplay between solid and void attracts me, and the vocabulary of forms that comprise the sculptures is enriched daily by discoveries that I find in nature.” Installed outside of the Quick Center of the Arts, this sculpture is in conversation with its natural setting on Fairfield University’s campus, and highlights the biomorphic and geometric forms that comprise his signature style. Hayes drew his inspiration from nature and translated it into an industrial-strength sculpture.
