‘Things on display in Hayes’s museums seem as alive and lively as the people, and the people are as detached as the things.’ Barry Schwabsky

Transition is pleased to present a solo show by Georgia Hayes. Her large scale, figurative paintings, which zing with exuberant colour have been called ‘resolutely modern’ by Martin Maloney, their simplified graphic language bringing to mind Philip Guston, Alex Katz and her immediate contemporaries Rose Wylie and Roy Oxlade.

Our lives are constantly informed and influenced by the spaces we inhabit. For Gaston Bachelard the place for dreaming is the home, while Michel Foucault’s heterotopias describe the place, central to a culture, where reality is suspended, a ‘simultaneously mythic and real contestation of the space in which we live.’

Heterotopias are both real and unreal at the same time, like the theatrical notion of being transported elsewhere whilst remaining exactly where you are. These ‘different spaces’ could include the museums, opera house [theatre] and zoological gardens [safari] that are under scrutiny in Georgia Hayes’ latest paintings. Animals, museum objects and opera singers take centre stage in equal measure. Indeed, they may be in the space together, calling into question the order of things and pointing us to the thresholds that symbolically mark not only the boundaries of a society but its values and beliefs as well. A fresh sense of wonder, like that which inspired the very first museums, permeates Hayes’s vision. Whether observed from life or imaginatively invented, we are able to recognise ourselves as subjects of what we are doing and thinking, or indeed singing, out loud.

Georgia Hayes : Sing Out Loud will be accompanied by a catalogue priced at £7 which includes an essay by Barry Schwabsky

For some reason it's much bigger than yours... Puzzling given how fussy phpBB are about avatar file sizes.
Not that size matters of course. :)
