 Cinc Hayes Art exhibit in Durham, NC at Urban Durham Realty for the Art walks:
July 15th and Aug 19 2016
The whimsical and celebratory works of award-winning artist Cinc Hayes will be brightening up Durham inside Urban Durham Realty July 2 through the end of Aug 2016. They will be open to the public for the Durham art walks July 15th and Aug 19th. 
Located at 401 Foster Street Durham, NC 27701
Characterized by vibrant colors, fanciful subjects and intricate mazes of abstractions, the mixed media exhibit Whimsical Travels transports viewers to far-away lands.

Sketch pad in hand, Hayes traveled the world: from the vast landscapes of Northern Norway, to the lush and verdant rainforests of Central America and the towering, gleaming cities in between. The body of work on display was inspired by his journey, and conveys a narrative infused with the folkloric elements of an epic odyssey: an ancient ship alone at sea, fantastical creatures concealed within a visual labyrinth of texture, color and pattern. At home in the Carolinas, he finds inspiration from the natural beauty of local woods, lakes and rivers. Kayaking to remote islands with his easel, paints, and Winston Churchill (his dog), the solitude reveals a vitality in the landscape, uninterrupted by everyday distractions.

In addition to a formal background in studio art, the artist has a degree in philosophy that lends a multilayered complexity to his work. And in looking closely, one can imagine the winding swirls of the artist’s subconscious guiding his hand. It is easy to get lost in the intricate motifs and the energetic movement of brushstrokes as one’s eyes travel along the richly textured surfaces, studded with unusual objects and materials.
