Hayley FieldArtist, Arts development worker
My paintings are about experiences - of things, moments, people and places. I like to paint something that I can't imagine how to - moving light, strange shapes, events. These things may be spied fleetingly from a car or train, recalled purely from memory, or studied more carefully up close. It is their colour and composition and how they are rooted in the plane of the painting that interests me. I apply paint in a range of ways - from washes, brushstrokes, masking and stencilling to working back through layers of paint, destroying and erasing - creating a flat but complex surface. Painting allows me a unique space to challenge myself - to ruin and spoil, take risks and make mistakes.
