Hayley Lander


Hayley Lander explores how landscape painting processes can be used to convey the complexities of the relationship between humanity and nature. Sites of human generated change in Canberra’s suburban environment are inspiration for her artwork. Experimentation with the application of paint draws a connection between the construction of an environment with her own construction of a painting as the materials are manipulated on the surface of the support.

Hayley’s work during the residency will explore the possibilities of painting further, as well as experimenting with fracturing and reassembling space through the medium of collage.
