In his 1960’s paintings and sculptures, Alex Hay depicted the formal properties of everyday objects. His works where a cross between minimalism, hyperrealism, and Pop Art. During that same period he worked as an assistant to Robert Rauschenberg and created stage designs for the choreographic works of Merce Cunningham. After 1963, Hay performed with the Judson Church Theater. In 1969, he left New York and moved to the small mining town of Bisbee, (Arizona, U.S.), where he distanced himself from the world of art. Although he participated in the Whitney Biennial in 2004, his work after 1969 has rarely been seen.
