Rodney Hatfield’s latest enigmatic portraits, abstract paintings and quirky found-wood constructions will be on display beginning Friday evening, August 7th. Come meet this delightful Louisville artist in person. Opening reception is August 7th from 5 to 7pm. The show runs through August 20th.
Hatfield is primarily a self-taught artist who has learned much by studying the works of his predecessors. Having already made a name for himself as a musician, he signs his paintings, “Art Snake,” a twist on the phrase “art for art’s sake.” Playful and improvisational, Hatfield’s brightly-colored canvases evoke emotion. His characters have a flawed familiarity about them, reminding us of half-forgotten personalities from our own dreamscapes.
The gallery extends an invitation to the public to come meet this delightful and talented man and enjoy his latest works. Rodney Hatfield is a fascinating artist and musician who dances to his own tune.
