Exhibition on view June 28 - September 12, 2014
Jefferson Hayman is an artist that works within the themes of nostalgia, common symbols and memory. He lives and works in Tappan, NY a small town located minutes outside of Manhattan and filled with the history of the American War of Independence. From his training and environment Hayman has forged an individual visual sensibility. The photographs themselves are handcrafted silver gelatin, platinum and pigment prints that seem historically timeless, captured with a delicacy of tonality that harks back to the highest traditions of graphic art. The works are then paired with antique or artist made frames which place each piece into the realm of unique statements.
