Sculpture: Hoss Haley

July 2 - December 11

Union 062119: patina on fabricated Corten steel, 59h x 51 x 69 in., 2019
 

Sharing space with Hoss Haley’s monumental work transports the viewer to a place where a clear separation between human creation and organic influence is undefined, yet beautifully intertwined. Color and texture are suggested but are ultimately ruled by nature. The marrying of raw nature and human intervention is what makes Haley’s work so captivating, allowing the opportunity to forget traditional rules, and marvel at a creation beyond our understanding.

About the Artist

Sculptor Hoss Haley creates two and three dimensional works in steel, concrete and bronze. He favors industrial materials and fabrication methods, often building or adapting the machines and tools he uses to produce his work. Hoss has completed public art projects for the Pack Square Conservancy (Asheville, NC), Charlotte Area Transit System and Mecklenburg County (NC) as well as several privately commissioned large-scale steel sculptures. Hoss’s work has been shown at several museums and galleries nationwide, and he has been a resident artist at Penland School of Crafts (NC) and at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (WI). Hoss learned machining and steel fabrication at an early age and them apprenticed as a blacksmith for several years in Texas and New Mexico. Decades later, his work is heavily influenced both conceptually and aesthetically by the western landscape of his youth.
