Out into the wild – following her extremely staged self-portraits, Haley Jane Samuelson now dares to venture out into nature. However, we are not talking about the juvenile, fresh and green nature promised to us by the first blossoms of spring.
Her pictures are dominated by brown, gold and bronze tones and are populated by people, which float through the imagery, lost and removed.
Usually, their gaze is averted, they turn their backs to the camera, appear as active alien elements within a tranquil world, to dream or wonder who has had the indecency to stare at them from outside the frame.
A feast for sore eyes – and still on display until the 8th of May at Hous Projects gallery New York.
Haley Jane Samuelson received an MFA from Parson’s The New School for Design, New York, NY and a BFA from the Ringling School of Art & Design. She received critical praise for her previous solo exhibition with hous projects from The New Yorker, Can Magazine, French PHOTO, Oxford American and Zoom.
