In the Studio with Alumna Hayley Quentin and 'ArtMaze Mag'

Quentin ('08) Speaks On Studio Rituals And Why She Returned to LA
By ArtMaze Mag

Reprinted from ArtMaze Mag

"Hayley Quentin’s ('08 Fine Arts) paintings challenge the conventional representation of male beauty and eroticism in art. Her ethereal facture is characterized by the interplay of diffuse and saturated oil colors, working together to create a lens through which the viewer sees the painted body.

From jewel-like watercolors to larger-than-life-size portraiture, Hayley repurposes traditional art making processes to explore her vision of male representation in contemporary art.

Hayley has also worked in film as Assistant Director and in art production while collaborating with fellow artist and director Juliacks in Helsinki and Lyon.

Born in Los Angeles, Hayley studied at Otis College of Art and Design, where she received a BFA with Honors. She has since spent 7 years living and working in Europe, mainly in the UK and France. She has recently returned to Los Angeles where she currently resides.

AMM: Tell us a little about your artistic background. When did you know you wanted to become an artist and how did you find your artistic voice?

HQ: There was never a doubt in my mind that I would make art. I was very lucky to have that creative desire fostered as a young person, which led me to study Fine Art at Otis College of Art and Design here in Los Angeles. That’s when I started to challenge conventional representation of male beauty and eroticism in my work.

My artistic voice is inherently a part of me and how I see the world. In a way it feels easy: if you’re an artist you do the things you like, and you’re never going to be ‘done’. In other ways it is very difficult: technique, subject, medium, concept – I’m trying to find the moment where a piece becomes more than the sum of its parts."
