FIELD, Hayley

1967 - ?

Born at Epping, Essex in 1967, daughter of Andrew Field and his wife Margaret A. née Jones, who married at Epping in 1964. Hayley studied at Loughton County High School 1978-1985 and on a Foundation Course in Art and Design at Loughton College of Further Education 1985-1987, Chelsea School of Art, London 1986-1989, gaining a BA (hons.) degree in painting and Middlesex University, London 1991-1992 gaining an MA in Video and has continued her artistic practice since leaving college. She has worked at the London College of Print-Making, the Camden Arts Centre and as co-director at Suffolk ArtLink. Her paintings are something that she cannot imagine, moving light, strange shapes, events which may be spied fleetingly from a car or train, recalled purely from memory, or studied more carefully up close and it is their colour and composition that interests her. She applies paint in several ways, washes, brushstrokes, masking and stencilling working back through layers of paint, destroying and erasing, creating a flat but complex plane. She has had solo exhibitions which include The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth 2011 and mixed shows including Anna French Studio, Brixton; The Artists' Gallery, Wandsworth; Halesworth Gallery, Suffolk; King's Lynn Arts Centre, Norfolk; Dexter Dalwood, APT Gallery, Deptford and Art Britannia, Lion & Lamb, Art Basel Miami. She has her studio at Victoria Road, Woodbridge, Suffolk.
