Hailey Guzik is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is rooted in continual embodied interaction with their surroundings, using phenomenological, site-specific experiences as tools to reinterpret landscape, space, and environment. Expanding notions of plein-air painting into installation and digital media, their current research explores critical perspectives of perception and memory within representations of landscape in art and technology and the connections this has to the climate crisis.

Holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University (2017), their projects have been supported by ArtsNB, Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, and Canada Council for the Arts. They have exhibited work with This Town is Small (PEI), HIFF (Halifax, NS), ConneXion ARC (Fredericton, NB), Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen (Moncton, NB), Gallery on Queen (Fredericton, NB), and Owens Art Gallery (Sackville, NB) and most recently completed residencies at Centre for Art Tapes (Halifax, NS, 2022) and Ada X (Montreal, QC, 2023).
