Roger Hayes - CONTACT AT: LOOPBASEDGUITARART@GMAIL.COM

Born (1962) and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Attended graphic art
courses at the Center for Creative Studies, 1978 - 1981.
Found my way into the then International Neo-Expressionist
movement with a heavy emphasis on the narrative figurative.
Showed in alternative space galleries in Chicago, Detroit,
Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus.
Moved to the west coast and left a void behind that soon became
filled with controversy. Works submitted to the heavily media-
picketed Fear No Art exhibit in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which
instantaneously became notorized by Right-wing picketers, the
daily Detroit Free Press and nightly television. The event was
noted in a October 15 1990 Newsweek article on obscenity within
the then current context of Robert Maplethorpe and Jesse Helms,
and two of my pieces were sited for their edgy content. An exhibit
at Ann Arbor's 111 Art was viewed by the wife of Jimmy Carter's
cabinet minister Zbignew Breszinski, who was then curator of
Eastern European art in Washington D.C., with entourage. She had
been in Ann Arbor debuting a new collection of Eastern Bloc Art at
the University of Michigan. She was infuriated at my show and as a
result the show was closed by the police 3 days later.
Teaming up with Jacques Karamanoukian in 1987 caused my work
to focus on the influence of Art Brut. Before long my work was
exported to France and shows on the continent started coming in. I
first exhibited at the Galerie Meduane, in Laval, France in 1988. In
1999 I was fortunate to be one of a small group of American
artists invited to exhibit at one of Europe's foremost Outsider/ Art
Brut venues, Halle St. Pierre, in the heart of Paris, located just
below the Sacre-Coeur. I maintained this association through the
early years of the 21st century, and was able to have my works
located in the Musee de L'Art Brut, in Lausanne, Switzerland, as
well as in the Creation de L'art Franche, in Begles, France.

Statement:

There's already a surfeit of reality around us; as an artist, why
would I want to produce more?
The "accidental" by far parallels "reality" in a much more accurate
way. I prefer a series of events, that define, loosely, the
circumstances of a painting session.
The painting is an arena, the "ring" in which the contestants, the
paint and the artist, fight it out, or dance.
I can't imagine any other definition.
