Whittingham, Hayley

Hayley Whittingham is currently a fine art student at Edinburgh College of Art, where her studio practice is based in painting, alongside the study of art history. From her time spent working in over seven museums and galleries, she has developed an interest in the composition and curation of the wider spaces in which art is created and exhibited. This is explored in a collection of drawings and paintings of the interiors of studios and galleries. Alongside this, she works as an artist’s model, occasionally switching places and painting and drawing portraits from life. Inspired by personal experience, she aims to capture the complex relationship between artist and model
