In his current series of drawings and paintings Bill Hayner is creating organic abstract forms that express his fascination with the physical, biological processes of birth, growth and transformation, and the relationship those processes have with the passage of time. The forms he creates imply an imagined rhizome-based biology, intended to suggest, rather than depict, growing life forms, such as bones, organs or stones, seemingly arrested in a moment of time.
