Working in painting and digital media, Stephen Haley uses 3D modelling software to explore the virtual and actual environments of contemporary experience. Where once we inhabited particular and unique places, these are increasingly replaced by generic constructed space. Haley transforms seemingly unremarkable urban surroundings into complex spatial and visual phenomena, to highlight the current conditions of rapid urbanisation, digital evolution and environmental degradation. This exhibition features a selection of Haley’s recent constructed photographs and video work, including vast aerial vistas of metropolitan spaces and driving simulations.

 

Haley lives and works in Melbourne. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1991, and has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally for the past 18 years.

Stephen Haley is represented by MARS Gallery, Melbourne.
