James Hayward has a show up at Richard Telles Fine Art on Beverly until January 14, 2012.  It’s part of the Pacific Standard Time exhibits across California.  A huge Hayward fan, this show gave me a sense of time, free-will and understanding.  I am in love with Jimmy’s paintings and they always conger lusciousness and detail and smashing up ideas of perfection in imperfection.  Surface.  Perspective.  Yummyness.  Wonder.  Hayward’s paintings are exalted.

These paintings are in my private collection.  I think they are great works to look at before you go to the show.   I love looking at them.   They are placed in my home, so I see them all the time from my desk on either end of the room.  For me, they are holy and hopeful and they bring good things.

Hayward’s show at Richard Telles shows where he has come from and his mastery.  From one end of the spectrum to the other, I wonder how he did it, does it.  The colors, the paintings are bigger then themselves somehow.  There is a purity as well.  When you stop by the show, check out the gray one.  Just stand before it and see it hum.

p.s. When you sign the book on the way out, take a moment and read the first page of the book James Hayward: Works 1975-2007

p.p.s. Here’s a post from Spring 2011:  James Hayward in Moorepark, CA
