Christina Haylett: Revelations in Paint exhibition features a large collection of mixed-media, non-representational artworks, landscapes and portraits created by Detroit-area artist Christina Haylett between 2009 and 2022. Haylett’s work is an exploration of shape, pattern, line, texture and color and their impact on each other. Her pieces start out as marks on a board, paper or canvas, and the act of working leads her through the artistic process with no idea where it will end up, or what will be revealed.
The artist often works plein air and is influenced by the world around her, but also her own thoughts, beliefs, and introspections about the concerns of our time. Haylett considers the last twelve years to have been her most life-changing and productive period, and she believes this body of work best represents her as an artist.
On display along with Haylett’s fascinating compositions is a small selection of studio glass pieces from the University of Michigan- Dearborn permanent collection. Christina Haylett and Curator Laura Cotton chose these works together that inspire the artist and reflect specific elements of her work.
