Electric Works is pleased to welcome back visual and sound artist Jim Haynes to the Project Space. Haynes creates almost-abstract images via a unique photographic and rust process.  The resulting images feel like half-remembered dreams of the American landscape.  Haynes is also branching out in new directions with this show: color photography is making its first appearance in his work at the gallery. This body of work not only contrasts nicely with the almost-black and white nature of his earlier work, but also reveals Haynes as a sensitive and subtle creator of photographic images, no matter the medium.

Jim Haynes lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. His work has been exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Exploratorium (San Francisco), Westspace (Melbourne, Australia), Diapason (New York), Jack Straw Productions (Seattle), Works (San Jose), Eyedrum (Atlanta), The Fugitive Art Center (Nashville), and Varnish (San Francisco). He writes about sound art, noise culture, minimalism, and general music experimentation for The Wire, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, Metro Pulse, The Sound Projector, and Chunklet.
