Curatorial Statement
Jodi Hays’ latest series of paintings, Super Scraps, encourages the continuous evaluation and re-evaluation of our visual environment. Her work suggests that ultimately things do fit together. Whether it’s a dilapidated building we pass or a bag we carry or a product we buy, all of these things, despite the inevitable chaos we encounter, are not only related, but also consequential.
Diverging from the highly structured compositions that made up an earlier solo exhibition in 2011, Hays has introduced an element of disorder in her new work. This chaotic component is found amongst the controlled forms in various manifestations. Sometimes it is seen in a single, liberated gesture or a bold interruption of color. Other times it is embodied in an organic shape weaving its way through rigid lines. It’s in the wealth of such thoughtful idiosyncrasies that we discover the principle of flexibility overcoming rigidity. Or in broader terms, softness overcoming hardness.

Hays’ paintings are the culmination of her experiences, both personal and communal. Though pulled directly from her own life, the resulting imagery transcends any attempt at a biographical narrative. The referenced objects and scenes are often stripped of most identifying detail, granting them passage into the realm of ambiguity and allowing them to become nuanced representations of a shared reality. As she continues to reconfigure the world around her, Hays has built a visual language all her own.
