Hayley Hare is a multifaceted artist from the North East (UK), currently living and working in London. Hare’s practice is highly personal and explores themes surrounding her views and concerns with life, identity, self-expression and emotion. Her on-going body of work entitled ‘Black Dog’ explores mental health, predominantly depression, both personal, socially and historically. Recently Hare has discovered she may have Autism and is awaiting assessment, which has started the project ‘Becoming a Rainbow’
Principally using Printmaking techniques, photography, film and sound she is open to whatever medium suits the work being produced. Using layers of multiple mediums Hare creates 2d work, installations and live performances which convey a complex emotional state. Creating drama and intrigue in her work, Hare draws the viewer in to a disparate narrative that they must work to piece together.
Hare has exhibited nationally and is acting Chair of Artists Union England
