James L. Hayes

Join artists from our forthcoming exhibition Home: Being and Belonging in Contemporary Ireland to discover more about their work and artistic practice in this free, online series of talks.

James L Hayes is an Irish contemporary visual artist whose current work and research practice reinvests a modernist sculptural language. His recent projects use methods of artistic production as a means by which to interrogate the boundaries between artist, artisan and art object in order to draw out the often-incongruous relationships between finished art objects, and the industrial aspects of the processes that produce these revered objects. He has been awarded numerous awards and grants to support his practice and he also invests heavily in the University educational sector and work across the UK & US higher education system frequently taking part in visiting lecturing series and international cross collegial projects and events. Hayes is a graduate of Limerick School of Art & Design, De Montfort University Leicester and the University of London. He is the principal lecturer in Sculpture at the Crawford College of Art in Cork, Ireland.
