Jodi Hays
Evening (Shadow)


Jodi Hays Keeper Landscape is a consistent prompt in my work, perhaps related to having grown up(almost literally) in a National Park in Arkansas. Painting’s properties give it a particular capacity to refer to where architecture (the grid) and time intersect. In the work for “Keeper,” I continue to explore painting’s agency as I walk throughout my neighborhood and respond to it. These walks yield paintings addressing what I experience living in my part of the city. In living in close proximity, we experience so much surrounding issues of racial bias, class and gentrification, police surveillance and educational disparity. I began using red ink after the 2016 election for all its associative contexts; writing and editing, broadsides, alarm signals and blood. For years I have huddled around the warm and rambunctious campfire of abstraction. Although much of the content of the work has not changed substantially, there has been a slight shuffle into figuration/representation’s light. Given the state of America at the moment, many things should be illuminated.
