Statement

Scotlund Haisley has devoted his life to protecting animals for the past 20 years. He began his journey as an Humane officer in the District of Columbia, and has since traveled the globe coming to the aid of animals in need. In his recent position as the Executive Director of the Washington Animal Rescue League Haisley designed and constructed a revolutionary shelter facility that has set a new standard for animal care worldwide. Haisley is the former Senior Director of Emergency Services at The Humane Society of the United States and now the Founder and President of Animal Rescue Corps, he has led the rescue of over 250,000 animals including: dozens of puppy mills, the Michael Vick and other dog fighting cases, Hurricane Katrina and several other natural disaster. As an artist Haisley has been inspired by the powerful images of suffering and salvation that he witnesses during his animal rescue work. He paints these images using a vivid color palate to capture the intensity of these scenes, and frequently adds a rustic element to his work by painting on salvaged antique ceiling tins. Haisley’s paintings often focus on his subject’s eyes, which act as a portal to the raw emotion depicted throughout his work.
