After watching the video and seeing his exhibit (for the second time might I add, you can read about the first time here) I was absolutely stunned by Haley's ability to turn something as tough and strong as a car hood and a broken washing machine into something that looked almost delicate in it's composition. From far away, it was actually almost hard to tell what Haley's creations were made of, as the amount of detail prevalent in each work obviously did not point straight to washing machine. However, as I continued to explore throughout the exhibit, I became fascinated by the way Haley seemed in control of these difficult materials, as he could take something so strong, and in some ways "ugly" and turn it into something intricate and detailed and absolutely stunning.
My favorite piece was definitely the donut (which is not actually the real title of the work, and perhaps I was just hungry), as it hung a few inches off the ground, allowing for the work to swing on it's own, giving the viewer a complete view. I also loved a motion sense drawing happening in the back room, the intricate lines and swirls depicted the movement throughout the gallery, which I thought was such a unique way to document the experience! I end result was incredibly stunning (as can be seen at the top), and I would have loved to have seen all the drawings from the different days at the gallery put next to one another!
