The Artwork of Hal Braxton Hayes
In the creative world, any person capable of surpassing the limits of the conventional is susceptible to being carried away by art. Why? Perhaps it is because art is the unique expression whose purpose is not functionality, but rather it is contemplation, reflection, catharsis, among other abstract and subjective matters. “Every stalled desire is poison,” affirmed André Maurois, and in the case of Hal Braxton Hayes it was to be expected that one day his mind and body could no longer resist the temptation of creation for creation’s sake. Thanks to this he left an important cultural legacy behind.
