Haynes’ project will be the second iteration of Recess’s collaboration with Charlotte Kidd and Dustin Yellin from Kidd Yellin Studios in Red Hook. Recess’s original location at 41 Grand Street in SoHo will remain open; both spaces will be free and open to the public.
During his premiere US solo presentation, Haynes will adapt the residency room at Kidd Yellin into a production studio for a series of abstract, geometric paintings. Known for his work as a musician in the group Butthole Surfers, Haynes will translate his intimate relationship with sound and the hardcore movement into visual vocabulary. On eight-foot square canvases, the artist will use bold, contrasting colors issuing from the center in echoing circles. Revolving like a record, the canvas becomes vinyl and the paint etches vibration.
