Iris Hauser

Iris Hauser (born 1956) is a figurative painter who has committed herself to the human form for more than four decades. Her paintings combine high realism with allegory and symbolism to achieve a self-conscious, contemporary take on surrealism. She works primarily with oil paints, in the tradition of the Old Masters. She was born in Cranbrook, British Columbia. Her art education began in Victoria from 1973 to 1974 followed by one year of study at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax in 1975. After relocating to Saskatoon, she continued her studies in the department of Art and Art History at the University of Saskatchewan from 1977 to 1979 and also undertook a year of independent study in Kassel Germany from 1980 to 1981. She continues to reside in Saskatoon where she maintains an active studio practice. Hauser has exhibited her works throughout the province and region for four decades and her paintings can be found in numerous private and public collections.
