Liam Haley is a multi-disciplinary artist currently living and working in Melbourne. Born on the Northern Rivers of NSW, Haley’s upbringing in a scenic environment of green and blue fertile landscapes has shaped his art practice today.
After completing a Bachelor of Fine Art in Printmaking at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Haley’s graduate body of work was awarded the 2018 Australia Print Workshop Collie Print Trust Scholarship for Emerging Victorian Printmakers.
Haley’s artistic practice is currently concentrated in printmaking and painting. His work is informed by movements of his body, ideas of place, mark making and particular naturalistic and mental landscapes – expressive and vibrant paintings juxtapose monochromatic prints with gestural line work. Haley revisits memories and investigates the emotional response that particular landscapes can elicit, using this idea of place to inform his creation of non-representational imagery.
Modern Times respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather, share and celebrate local creative practice. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of Australia. They have never ceded sovereignty, and remain strong in their enduring connection to land and culture.
