Hayley Martin’s practise combines processes of drawing, painting, collage and recently printmaking to record and discover the world that surrounds her. Living in country NSW on the Murray River she take inspiration from the magical colours, organic shapes and various textures that appear in nature. Martin collages studies of the landscape that reflect the beauty she find in the natural environment.
“Collaging layers of colours and textures becomes a meditative process which I quickly get lost in when I create. This process hopefully results in a tranquil and fluid aesthetic, communicating a connection to a place found beyond the urban fringe.”
In 2014 Martin completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in drawing at the Victorian College of the Arts. This is her first solo show.
