Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Canada

Artist Statement

I cultivate my research through found objects, significant moments in time, memories, and non-landscape photographical references such as a pattern on a tablecloth or a crack in the sidewalk. Furthermore, I study phenomena like rain, snow, wind, and water in the context of ecological shifts. I reference both the human-made objects and the natural world we inhabit. Focusing on their placement in time to inform understandings of now, then, how. These considerations draw upon the relational construction of internal space. I aim for my work to serve as a catalyst to bring the viewer into the moment with me with the hope that one might reconnect with their own memory. This is why my work sits somewhere between representational and partially recognizable, straddling the physical world and not-so-physical space that we hold within. I believe our species is rooted and of nature, I look to the more-than-human for new concepts of community, evidence of these relationships, and other forms of connection inherent within its structures. I am proposing the landscape painting, is not an illustration of the more than human world but a document of interconnection.


Calling Saskatoon home her whole life, Hailey Weber (b.2000) has spent much of her time developing roots in her community through high level sport playing soccer with the University of Saskatchewan, developing bilingualism, diverse volunteerism, and many lived experiences within the community she calls home. Beyond that, Hailey has had the opportunity to travel throughout nearly all of the provinces in Canada, numerous locations in America, Australia, Italy, Mexico, Paris, and beyond in the early years of her life. Through interaction with new cultures, histories, flora and fauna it has allowed her to understand her place more fully. Through her lived experience, she has come into contact with an incredibly diverse variety of individuals widening her perspective on how others experience life. This investigation of people, place, and culture is central to her practice.

Hailey has been the recipient of a variety of scholarships including the Misanchuk memorial travel scholarship for undergraduate research, an Honours Scholarship from the college of Arts and Science, a book prize for receiving the highest academic average in senior level French, five scholarships from Sasksport, the Anna Bychinski Award for excellence in the fine arts, and support through the Prince Edwards Scholarship from SK Arts.
