Michelle Hyland

Returning closer to home, the local night scapes brought me reflections and structures to play with. I used multiple images combined on the same picture plane to create the movement of your head as you walk around streets, crossing roads, turning your head to noises, lights and small moments.

ARTIST STATEMENT 'reincarnation' 2018 - Michelle Hyland

My current paintings reflect the transitory nature of structures around Perth. The constant reincarnation of the city responding to new ideas about people in the built environment creates these interruptions displaying the process of change.

I was drawn to the underlying structures of new buildings, usually partitioned off and out of sight, as things having beauty and representing important phases of the reconstruction. They seemed to represent a process that was quiet and unobserved.

This theme found resonance with the reincarnation concept of life being a constant renewal process with fleeting memories like dreams that emerge for the briefest second and then retreat again. The atmospheric rendering of these transitory events attempt to represent this ephemeral evidence.
