GREG J. HAYES
Any of These (or Others Like These)

Artist Talk: Thursday, October 7 at 5:15pm
Closing Reception: Thursday, October 7 from 6:00-8:00pm

The Whittier College Greenleaf Gallery is pleased to present Any of These (or Others Like These), a solo exhibition of artwork by Greg J. Hayes. Hayes is a Los Angeles based artist who studied for a year at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston before receiving his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2010. In recent years, he has exhibited work in in Boston, Los Angeles, San Diego and Troy, NY, and images from his current body of work will be on display in the GLAMFA exhibition at Cal State Long Beach through mid-September. This Fall, Hayes will be an artist-in-residence at the Cultural Center at Eagle Hill in Massachusetts.
My practice is based on the idea that art making is a way of thinking. The process is a space for contemplation outside of and in addition to the thoughts necessary to complete the act. At the core of this practice is an insistent investigation of time and experience through the unique conditions of photography.
Any of These (or Others Like These) involves the reorganization of photography’s hierarchy by using the depth and duration of my attention instead of light and movement as guides to exposure, thus prioritizing film’s capability as a recorder of time over that of a depicter of space. Made at various sites on large-format color negative film, these photographs are traditionally called time exposures – the duration of each determined by how long I linger.
The potential for making a photograph necessarily exists at all times and places; the locations where the photographs begin are important only in their non-specificity. See Also – the body of work from which Any of These draws – builds on the idea that not only is a photograph a way of thinking, but a negative is also a container for time. In making this work, I am clearing personal spaces in an otherwise cluttered social terrain – short stops within a moving system. The prints produced are the final stages of photographs, their quality and reproducibility independent of their roles.
In conjunction with this image work, I have been developing a text piece that shares its name with the greater body of work, and theorizes a photographic ontology. The contents of this booklet challenge ways of knowing and reading a photograph, and impel a reconsideration of time spent. Its current form is that of a proposal, encouraging readers to ask themselves, “what can(‘t) be seen in a photograph?” Together, the photographs and the text engage questions about the implications of idleness while maintaining an emphasis on photographic inquiry and the conditions of perception.

" .... a satisfying adventure that traces the full developmental trajectory of an important voice in 20th century American art."
