partial install of Sticks & Sage at PCC's Northview Gallery
For nearly a decade with high profile appearances in the 2006 Oregon Biennial
(the last one at PAM), Haze Gallery (2004), The Art Gym and PICA's TBA Festival (2009)... capped off with a stunning show at Linfield College
, Jesse Hayward has made his mark as Portland's most radical painter. His latest, Sticks & Sage at PCC Sylvania
seems to be building on his two best shows (Linfield and TBA) setting up the potential to be "the show of the summer" in Portland. It suffices to say we have come to expect a lot from this onetime student of Karl Benjamin and former Sol LeWitt drawing apprentice (as child he helped execute a mural under the master's direction) so take note.
Here's the PR, "Whether it's with painted toothpicks stabbed into amorphous armatures or with hundreds of painted boxes stacked and re-stacked, Jesse Hayward creates art installations that are intended for direct audience manipulation. Utilizing repetition and ritual, he builds and paints objects in his studio that are then re-imagined through a collaborative, installation practice.
For his 2013 Summer Studio Residency at PCC Sylvania, Hayward will convert the North View Gallery into a visual laboratory with his installation, STICKS & SAGE. This project will take advantage of a deceptively simple technology: the zip-tie. Anyone attending the show will be presented a variety of painted sticks with pre-drilled holes and zip-ties with which to build freestanding structures. Again, direct audience participation will define the outcome of this work."

This Saturday Place
is presenting two artist talks, Stephanie Simek
on her Radio Room and Jodi Darby will expound upon Safe & Sound?
at 4:30PM at the ever unlikely venue Pioneer Place mall downtown.
Radio Room is literally a room transformed into an AM radio festooned with crystals and other hardware. Whereas, "Safe & Sound? is a documentary video installation by a collective of artists and community organizers concerned the Portland Police Bureau's use of excessive force and other methods of intimidation. Using innovative video and audio presentation methods, Safe & Sound? tells stories about police brutality and resistance to police brutality in the Portland community."
