DRESS TO IMPRESS
you are rich, afterall
J.Haley is a California born Texan from Idaho. Writer for Cantanker Magazine, and co-director of Pump Project Art Complex, he believs that we are all centers of the universe, but fears this idea will propagate a cult to form. In seventh grade he entered some wood carvings into the Idaho State Fair, winning honorable mention in the adult class and second place in the youth division.
His work is conscious of the perceived world, but doesn’t know what that means. In his recent drawings/paintings of stuff on discarded wood, he purposefully attempts to limit perfection to deliver a sense of the raw and beautiful.
J. Haley is a mad man.
