Ray Haydon: Passage

November 2, 2021 - November 28, 2021

Courtesy: the artist and Sanderson Contemporary Art, Auckland.

Artist Ray Haydon is known as a master of materials – he effortlessly sculpts fluid forms from the most rigid and unforgiving materials.

This new body of work, as it’s title Passage suggests, is a continuation of Ray Haydon’s distinctive sculptural practice of working with various mediums. In his masterful approach, Haydon never loses the urge for development and experimentation, pushing his familiar materials into new and transformative outcomes.

He boldly introduced red into his mostly monochromatic kinetic works and resin coated wall sculptures recently; here Haydon surprises us with a jewel toned deep purple wall sculpture entitled Passage, a monumental dynamic and fluid artwork using carbon fibre for lightness and strength.

Haydon is renowned for his minimal ribbon works, these wall sculptures known as the Convolution, Fluid and Velocity series embody his vision and innovation with carbon fibre – “I always describe it as getting a ribbon, throwing it in the air, and freezing it. Basically, when they are made, that is it: they’re free formed. There’s not a preconceived idea of what they will end up as, nor can I force that.”
