Rod Hayslip brings a unique perspective to his art — touching on ways in which we interact with one another. His paintings fuse abstract art and realism in a manner that kindles a deeply personal experience within his audience.
“For me, creating art is an exhilarating, hyper-focused activity where time stands still. I get lost in the act of painting and in the narratives emerging. Within gatherings of people I see both community and the individual.” — Rod Hayslip
