Laura Hale is visual artist based out of Saskatchewan, Canada. Her art practice includes public art, outdoor and indoor site-specific installation, temporary and ephemeral land art, object making and community-based projects.
Her work often focuses on exploring and responding to location, landscape and the environment and the exploration, collection and sourcing of local and unique materials. By using and combining an eclectic range of art making materials her work comes together to create objects and experiences that animate and respond to location, increases awareness of our surroundings and challenges the way we see familiar objects or places.
She is inspired by Land Art in the use of the landscape and natural materials in the creation of the work, Craft Art by the practice and skill of making of things by hand, and by the Arte Povera movement in the use of unconventional, everyday materials to create objects and interactive experiences.
Laura studied at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan and Emily Carr University in Vancouver, British Columbia.
