“In this series, I found myself fixating on the visual and symbolic properties of the opal: hope, joy, consciousness - colors that hold lightness and vibrancy. Along with this, I was inspired by memories of past experiences in architectural spaces where I felt transported and stable. These stacked compositions serve as small memorials to these themes, imbued into each piece through the meditative process of weaving.” — Hayley Sheldon
Hayley Sheldon (b. 1984) is a West Palm Beach, Florida-based multidisciplinary sculptor and installation artist. With a focus on tactility and color, Hayley’s shaped screens explore fleeting experiences of the natural world, like the slow growth of plant life and the gentle shift of sunset to dusk. Distilled to discrete shapes and palettes, these individual pieces can be arranged and reconfigured to suit multiple installations and story-telling opportunities.
