Rochelle Haley is an artist and researcher working with experimental drawing, painting, movement and performance practice. She is interested in the relationship between bodies and physical environments. Her current projects involve drawing, painting and dance to explore space structured around the sensation of the moving body. Haley’s research in the fields of contemporary drawing and painting explores the material surface of representation to discover methods that are sensory, kinaesthetic, affective and rhythmic with an interdisciplinary reach to creative robotics and performance.

Haley lectures in expanded painting and experimental drawing at UNSW Art & Design Australia, where she completed a PhD in 2009. She has staged 10 solo exhibitions and has participated in over 45 national and international group exhibitions and collaborations, including curatorial selection for shows and performances at leading national venues Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney Artbar and UNSW Galleries. Haley has been artist in residence at Artspace, Sydney; Cite Internationale des Arts, Paris, France; Performing Arts Forum, St Erme, France; Drawing Spaces, Lisbon, Portugal; Rimbun Dahan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bundanon, NSW, Australia. Her practice led research has been exhibited and staged in major institutions and galleries locally and internationally. She has also published on her practice in Drawing: Research, Theory and Practice journal, Studio Research Journal and The International Journal of The Image. 

Research interests include experimental drawing, painting, movement, trans-disciplinary practice, embodiment, critical spatial and performance practice, dance and choreographic studies.
