Honor Hales
Artist Profile

Honor’s work comes predominantly in two forms, glass and canvas. The glass pieces are created with liquid lead and enamel varnishes on clear or handmade glass with a variety of backings ranging from handmade paper to crushed velvet. The canvas pieces are mainly on chunky stretched canvas and painted with acrylic, oil, liquid lead and enamel varnishes.

Almost all of Honor’s work is textured, and as the materials she uses are quite robust, she encourages the viewer to reach out and touch each piece. It feels like braille. The connection between the viewer and the piece is a large part of why Honor paints.
A love of line and fascination with colour began in earnest in college, where she wrote her thesis on colour psychology. This interest hasn’t faded, quite the opposite in fact.
