2017 – Graphite on paper

A drawing within a drawing within a drawing, Haines’s Still Life with Flyer series investigates the physical evidence of live interaction. The artist collects flyers and tickets for fringe events and translates these paper ephemera into painstakingly executed drawings, exactly as he found them –folded, creased and found in some forgotten back pocket. Haines is fascinated by how a seemingly insignificant object such as an event flyer can become both emotionally poignant and politically charged through being rendered, with all its traces of human use, in graphite on paper. 

Work on display at the Centraal Museum.
