DESCRIPTION

 

It’s serious fun in the world of Rodney Hatfield’s creations.  His improvisational paintings and sculptures parallel his musical process.  Each is loose, open, unplanned, and distinctive.  As an artist and blues harmonica player, Rodney finds that being in the moment is both a challenge and a necessity.  Rodney is captivated by the painted surface and all of its possibilities.  Inspired by the everyday things encountered at home, in novels, via dreams, and pure invention, Rodney’s artwork often shares a glimpse into a larger narrative.  While these stories might be unknown to even the artist himself, the characters or places within the ‘story’ have clearly infected him and recur again and again.  Each version within a series of kings, queens, dogs, or birds develops automatically, without preparatory sketches.   Mumbo Jumbo collects Rodney Hatfield’s spirited animals and human actors in a new stew of his always spicy technique.
