Louise Haselton: Act natural
Essays by Gillian Brown, Leigh Robb, Jenna McKenzie

Louise Haselton is an outstanding South Australian artist of international repute. Her alluring artworks offer glimpses of the curious inner lives of everyday and overlooked things.

With a witty reverence for the objects and materials she enages, Haselton explores the communicative possibilities of weight, balance and form within her predominently sculptural works. Her practice is unexpected, unconventional, and exemplary of an artist especially attuned to the matters which surround us.

Louise Haselton: Act natural is a comendium of Haselton's works to date including illustrated essays chronicling the inspirations, influences and ideas behind her extraordingary practice of the last twenty-five years.

The SALA series of books showcasing the works of South Asutralian living artists was initiated by the SALA Inc. Board and is published by Wakefield Press with the assistance of the Government of South Australia.
