At the core of Deirdre Hayden's art there is a tangible emphasis on drawing, primarily expressed through monochromatic inks with the immediacy of dynamic application. Her work seamlessly merges the human figure with a depth of emotional expression. More recent large-scale works exude a profound physicality and an immediate sense of form, beautifully capturing the essence of the body in motion.
What sets Hayden's approach apart is her ability to transform life drawing into a realm where that seamlessly intertwines the human form with the elegance and the evocative power of dance. Her works are a beautiful confluence of the two, skillfully capturing the movement and the expression that the human body can convey.
