Neil Haddon: anecdote / shift / mirror - Art Collector

Neil Haddon, We can build it anew, 2017. Oil and enamel paint on aluminium panels, 192 x 168cm. Courtesy of the artist and Bett Gallery, Hobart.

UK born Neil Haddon's recent paintings draw on his experience as a migrant to Tasmania and the ways that migrants find their own poetic meaning in the unfamiliar contexts of a new home.

Haddon employs a collage-like approach to painting, using a variety of seemingly incongruous sources. Collage is interpreted broadly as the combination of different things to make a new whole.

Haddon proposes that collage can be understood as movement and relocation, fragmentation and recombination, slippage in meaning and innovative translation.
