About

 

Rochelle Haley is an artist and researcher working with experimental drawing, painting, movement and performance practice. She is interested in the relationship between bodies and physical environments. Her current projects involve drawing, painting and dance to explore space structured around the sensation of the moving body. Haley’s research explores the material surface of representation in painting and drawing to discover methods that are sensory, kinaesthetic, affective and rhythmic with an interdisciplinary reach to creative robotics and performance.  Haley lectures in expanded painting and experimental drawing at UNSW Art & Design Australia, where she completed a PhD in 2009. 

 

In 2017 Haley was recipient of an Australia Council Arts Projects Grant, Copyright Agency Ignite Career Fund, Create NSW Artist Project Grant, and a Critical Path Residency bursary. Previously she has been awarded an Ian Potter Cultural Trust Grant, Arts NSW Quick Response Grant, Marrickville Council Independent Artist Grant, NSW Artists’ Grant (NAVA), Australian Postgraduate Award and an Early Career Researcher Grant.

 

Haley has staged 12 solo exhibitions and has participated in over 47 national and international group exhibitions and collaborations, including curatorial selection for shows and performances at leading national venues Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney Artbar and UNSW Galleries. Her solo and group exhibitions have garnered national and state media coverage including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, Art Monthly Australia and The Art Life and interviews in Artist Profile Magazine, Art Collector and Das Platforms.

 

Haley’s works are held in the collections of Artbank, NSW Attorney Generals Department, Australian Catholic University, Gadens Lawyers, Principle Advisory Services and Hijjas Kasturi Associates. Haley has been artist in residence at Artspace, Sydney, Cite Internationale des Arts, Paris, France; Performing Arts Forum, St Erme, France; Drawing Spaces, Lisbon, Portugal; Rimbun Dahan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bundanon, NSW, Australia.
