Annie Hayes Delhi NY 2014 each 19 1/2 x 15 1/2” My current work is about humans and animals co-existing and entering each other’s spaces and dreams, being together in the most mysterious of ways. I’m working on what will be a long series called “What Rough Beast?” based partly on the Yeats poem “The Second Coming,” where my intention is to show just that – which beast is rough, which is not, what is rough anyway, and hopefully deal with the why, all in visual terms. A lot of different kinds of work make up this series – prints, drawings, collage, and book. Kollwitz inspires me with her directness, always resistant to an overlay of intellectualized concepts. For her fearless approach, I am very grateful.
