LOUISE HASELTON

LOUISE HASELTON

b. 1960

"Louise Haselton produces sculptures and installations in which the formal placement of objects are contrasted with an element of randomness. Traditional precision craft techniques such as casting might be positioned within an assemblage of found objects. Following a Helpmann Academy residency at Sanskriti Kendra, Delhi, India, 2005, Louise has been making sculptural works using materials gleaned from the world around her."

(Dr Mary Knights, 2012)

Louise Haselton makes sculptural works using materials gleaned from the world around her. In 2002 Haselton completed a Masters of Visual Arts (Sculpture) by research at RMIT University, Melbourne and in 2005 undertook a residency at Sanskriti Kendra, Delhi, India. Haselton held solo exhibitions, in 2011 at The Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, in 2013 at Greenaway Art Gallery and in 2014 at The Australian Experimental Art Foundation. In 2015 Haselton participated in do it adelaide, at The Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, when she enacted instructions by Alison Knowles and was included in the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Magic Object at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Since 2003 she has been a lecturer in The School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia.
