Michelle Hiscock

b. 1968

Michelle Hiscock trained at the Canberra School of Art, Australian National University, graduating in 1991. Her early work, of small but powerfully evocative landscapes, was well received by both collectors and critics, and she has continued since then to develop her pictorial language, exploring the traditions of classical landscape from a contemporary perspective. Both her practice and her research have informed the lectures and master classes for which she is widely known at the National Art School and the Art Gallery of NSW.

Michelle has lived in Japan and France and travelled widely in Europe and especially Italy. She has held solo exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, and has been a finalist in several prestigious art prizes such as the Portia Geach Memorial Award, NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize and Gallipoli Art Prize. Michelle was awarded the inaugural artist in residence at St Albans in NSW, and has taken part in group shows around Australia as well as in London and Switzerland. In 2017, Hiscock travelled with a group of 12 artists to the Western Front, which resulted in the NSW regional touring exhibition Salient: Contemporary Artists at the Western Front. In 2019, Michelle held her first regional solo exhibition at Shoalhaven Regional Gallery titled ‘Two Rivers’.
