Summary:
"For more than fifty years, Hayward has endeavordd to bring light, through his art, to the strange and wondrous forms that lie hidden beneath the surface of things, revealing what is leftover when conventions fade away.... Presented here is a stunning visual autobiography, chronicling more than five decades of artistic vision. Arranged in five acts, Chasing Dragons traces the evolution of Hayward's work--from traditional portraiture to increasingly abstract and altered images, figurative paintings, dance, performance, and film. Join Hayward on this creative odyssey, exploring the fundamental elements of humankind and probing the mystery [that] lies at the core of your own being"--Page 4 of cover.
