Patrick Hayman

Patrick Hayman

Patrick Hayman (1915 – 1988) was an English artist who worked in a variety of media including painting, drawing and three-dimensional constructions. Although he only lived in Cornwall, for a few years, he was closely associated with the St Ives School of painters and sculptors.

Hayman acknowledged he was inspired to paint by R.N. (Bob) Field (1899-1987) teacher at the school of art in Dunedin, New Zealand, where Hayman went to live as a young man. He mingled there in the 1930s with a group of young artists who developed New Zealand's first indigenous Modernism. Notable in that group was Colin McCahon (1919-1987) who stayed in contact with Hayman and like him used texts as integral to his imagery.

A daughter, Christina Conrad, was born in New Zealand in 1942. Also an artist as well as a filmmaker and poet, her paintings and clay icons were created without her having knowledge of her real father, but neverthesless bear a striking resemblance, aesthetically and in terms of social concerns, with a lot of her father's work. She is well-known in New Zealand, Australia and the United States where she has exhibited widely in and around New York, including the Outsider Art Fair and the Kleinart Gallery in Woodstock.
