Artist Statement

Jodi Hays’ work extends from a two pronged exploration of isolation and community.  In her work she uses images that one associates with site-- bouquets, funerals, parties, flags, construction tape.

Her work is not bound to a specific medium.  She, like many contemporary artists,  prefers to allow content to direct the material manifestation of each project.  Her projects are metaphors for both personal and collective memory and can be seen as literal and psychological self portraits. Formally, she interested in defining object or image outside of context.
