Police Point Virtual Residency – Kristin Haskett
Kristin Haskett is a Mornington Peninsula-based artist whose work consists mainly of drawing, painting and printmaking. In this video, Kristen gives an enlightening artist talk about a collage work she created for her virtual residency.
Kristin discusses the evocative nature of remote Australian landscapes and their influence on her practice, and offers some valuable insight into the process of building collage works using juxtaposing materials and techniques to develop a sense of space within the artwork.
About the Virtual Residency program
Mornington Peninsula Shire’s internationally significant Police Point Artist in Residence program supports between 25 – 30 local, national and international artists each year. The program supports a wide range of emerging, mid-career and established artists, with more than half of the annual allocation of residencies granted to Peninsula-based artists to develop and foster their artistic practice.
In response to COVID-19 and in the corresponding interests of public safety, the Police Point Artist in Residence program was temporarily suspended in 2020. Mornington Peninsula Shire developed a virtual residency program to support the Peninsula-based artists who had previously successfully applied to continue to develop and deliver creative works.
