About Haley

Haley Hasler is an artist based in Fort Collins, CO. She earned an MFA in Painting from the School for the Arts at Boston University and a BFA in Painting from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.

Haley explains her work by saying, “Through the seemingly private world of self-portraiture and autobiographical narrative, I hope to present a compelling fictive world, without dictating a precise narrative or relying on a static symbolism. I try to invest the figure with an iconic confrontability – making it operate both as self-portrait and archetypal heroine. Painting impels me to cross the border freely between the universe of things and the universe of the imagination. The former involves an urgent encounter between the eye and the exterior world, while the latter contains the interior universe of memory, history, narrative, and desire.”

"I love portraiture so it’s really exciting when I find an artist who does it really well, especially self-portraits. Haley Hasler creates amazing paintings with herself as the focal point and her family as supporting cast. Each painting is stunningly complex and so well executed. Her ability to create so many intricate narratives, without ever feeling monotonous, is impressive."

"These paintings brought tears to my eyes. I have a 17 year old girl and this reminds me of our creative goddess fun conspiracies that continue on still today. I had to take her princess dresses off while she slept, she never wanting the fun to end.chi meegwetchJp"
