Artist in Residence

Upcoming Artist in Residence July - October 2024

Hal Witney


Autographic mark making, self-referential narratives and personal idioms. These are the vehicles through which Hal Witney expresses the spiritual and psychosocial tension between our hyper-sexualised, image-saturated consumer culture, and the self. Piggybacking upon the history of figuration in art and drawing from the inexhaustible arsenal of the digital realm, Hal unpacks this existential predicament with mischief and delight. Whilst in residence at Woollahra, Hal will develop a series of large-scale works on paper, incorporating textile elements, found objects, and kinetic contrivances.
