Fine Art Research Unit (FARU) Artist Talk: Dan Hays- Touch Screen

Events — Public Talk Microsoft Teams
10 February 2021, 14:00

Since the late 1990s, Dan Hays has explored the relationship between the intangible, encoded and instantaneous realm of digital technology, and the tactile, flawed and time-consuming medium of painting. Often working from low-quality landscape photographs and video stills sourced from the Internet, images are extensively digitally manipulated before being methodically transcribed onto canvas. His paintings present a paradoxical visual realm where shimmering pixels and physical brushstrokes coalesce.

Dan studied BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, graduating in 1990. He won the John Moores painting prize in 1997, and completed a PhD at Kingston University in 2012. He is a visiting lecturer at Central Saint Martins and Northampton University.
