|Facets: Art Fairchild
The Estate of Duayne Hatchett
April 1 through: June 17, 2017
Art Fairchild, a contemporary sculptor, is one of the artists featured in the April 1st exhibition. Art is
a local artist and has a studio near Trinity Groves area in North Oak Cliff. His current body of work is
inspired by relationships and interactions. Art's sculptures interpret these relationships and
demonstrate how individual forms interact to create a connection. His exhibition entitled "Facets"
reflects the surface of his sculptures, the many elements of personalities, and the negotiation within
human interactions to create a harmonious rapport. Work titles such as Paso Doble, Two Step, and
Tango demonstrate the engagement that takes place in dance, as well as interpersonal
relationships. Elements within Fairchild's sculptures harmonize to create the perception of
movement, intimacy, and synergy as they interact and reveal their own unique relationship.
Art's sculpture can be seen in public collections including Sator Cube which was recently installed
in front of the Tarrant County Sub-Courthouse downtown Arlington, TX. Two of his sculptures,Trio and
Whimsical Spherical, are installed in Richard Greene Linear Park at AT&T - Dallas Cowboy's Stadium.
Carneal Simmons Contemporary Art is honored to present Modern works from the estate of
American artist Duayne Hatchett (1925 - 2015), including select paintings, works on paper, and
sculpture. Duayne Hatchett received his BFA from the University of Oklahoma in 1950 and his MFA
in 1952. Hatchett developed a personal mode of expression that defines physical beauty and
solicits a universal response. His work has encompassed a broad and diverse artistic spectrum, from
the Mexican influenced printmaking and painting of the late 1940s to the found object junk metal
sculpture of the 1950s and early 1960s, to the architectonic sculpture and minimalist painting of
the 1960s through 1970s, and on to the abundant paintings, sculpture and printmaking of the last
forty years. His unique visual language has been created through the ingenious manipulation of
various materials, the discovery of techniques and processes, and the invention of tools. This is
work that conveys a powerful, clear, and unified expression of form, reflecting our environment
specifically and generally. His artworks invite both interaction and contemplation, allowing us to
unlock our memories and our senses through the act of observation.
His work has been exhibited and collected by art institutions throughout the world including the
