Sun Haas is an artist and illustrator, originally from Berlin, who has lived and worked in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia since 2011.
Sun’s work is concerned with the formation and understanding of connections. Her paintings are expressions of the connections she forms with herself, the environment and other human/non-human actors.
Sun’s practice reflects a life-long interest in spiritual philosophies and understandings of the human psyche. Through a non-directive painting process images emerge from a space in which imagination, experiences, conscious and subconscious combine. Deep colours, bold shapes and spontaneous mark-making form the basis of her visual language. Sun has a background in fine art, art therapy and fashion design.
