Visual Artist

Laine Hogarty operates a cross-disciplinary visual art practice using installation, sculpture, drawing and digital design to create real and imagined spaces that examine pre-conceived assumptions. She maintains a passion for sustainability and the repurposing of consumer waste into ephemeral artworks that reflect upon the impermanency and unpredictability of human experience. Laine’s works often take the form of unexpected interventions to challenge the way we approach, experience and imagine space in the built environment and landscape.
