Gillian Haig Biography

Growing up on a sheep farm in East Gippsland gave Gillian her strong connection to land and nature, and she continues to be inspired by her environment, now working and residing on the Mornington Peninsula.

Studying painting at RMIT from1976 to 1980 brought her to an urban artistic haven, where she was inspired by artists such as Elizabeth Gower and Rosalie Gasgoigne.

 She began to look at ways to layer paint and colours, and develop a language of symbols of a gestural nature that gave her work energy ,form and strength.

 After completing her post graduate studies in painting she was awarded the RMIT Travelling Scholarship, where she was able to tour major European galleries and see paintings she had only ever seen in art books.

On her return, she moved from inner city Melbourne to suburban Ivanhoe continuing to exhibit in many group shows, producing semi-abstract expressionist subjects in landscapes, colourful and rambling flower paintings and striking stilllife paintings, loving a new found domestic enviroment .

In 1990 Gillian and family moved to Red Hill,where she began painting the beautiful vistas of the Mornington Peninsula. She was soon also inspired by the abundance of produce grown in the area, and for a period concentrated on still life watercolours ,oils and acrylics. Over time she established herself as a respected community artist, exhibiting her work widely, winning many local prizes, running a local gallery and shop and completing numerous commissions- private pieces, stationary, signage, prints and portraits.

Gill continues to experiment with new concepts, forms and materials.

 Her work is collected both locally and internationally. She enjoys the challenge of expressing the inner through the outer, and hopefully discovering beauty in the process.

Gillian Haig Statement

i work with a multitude of mediums to express my artistic ideas- they flow between still life pieces, realised with almost botanical accuracy, to abstract, painterly and layered expressions. My imagination is given scope and room to roam by moving between detailed work and loose naiveity, and further, through the diversity of artist tools and the materials I use- oil, acrylic, ink, water color, Japanese sumi brushes, hand made paper, charcoal and more. Whether it be a kind of contemporary realism or abstract scenes I see my work as visual landscapes, playful, vivid and alive.
