  • Biography

    Robert Hails works mostly on zinc plates to produce elegant and sometimes whimsical etchings. He experiments with aquatint, stencil/rolled colour, wax pencil and other procedures on the plate. He pays attention to great detail, seeks patience and encourages his workshop students to take risks and to see where the the journey of creating a traditional etching may take them.
    As well as in the Visual Arts Robert has been seriously involved in the Performing Arts as an educator, performer, technician and producer at a tertiary level for over 40 years. As a consequence much of his works on paper respond to the characters, design, text and mystery of the theatre stage.
