Ray Haydon

What inspires your art practice?
My practice is inspired by both form and fluidity, my works capture a point of motion and a point of movement in time. Often my intimate understanding and sensitivity to materials influence the concepts that drive my work

What materials do you work in?
I have worked with a wide variety of materials and have an extensive knowledge of stainless steel,corten steel,bronze and carbon fibre to name a few. The materials that I sculpt with often inform the works – with my understanding of each material’s possibilities and limitations informing the choices I make.

Briefly describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018.
Reverb majestically stretches up to the sky, forcing the viewer to take pause and look skyward. Reverb is constructed from marine grade stainless steel and finished to perfection with its lustre reflecting all that surrounds it. As with a straight line interrupted – Reverb offers a moment of action within its vertical line – a reverberation of form.

Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZ Sculpture OnShore?
Heliograph can be seen in Teed St, Newmarket. I also exhibit at Sanderson Gallery in Newmarket, Auckland.
