A Life's Long Obsessive Search

Alison Hainey is an artist and landscape designer who, after graduation from Manchester School of Art, went to work in America and Hong Kong. She later returned to London, and set up a landscape practice in 1986.

The style of her drawing, however, seems slightly more personal. Describing her most recent work as a 'lifetime's obsessive search' to find the inner self, Hainey's Soliloquies exhibition can be viewed at the Craft Central Gallery on St. John's Square.

The paintings feature collective figures and faces that are impressionistic rather than realistic. Void of eyes, mouth, and definition, her characters still appear to be gazing off into the distance, and create a tone of deep thought and reflection. In this way she examines the conscious mind, and our ability to communicate complex emotions. The combination of group and solitary images implies that although we are a sociable species, we are ultimately alone.
