We are delighted to be highlighting the art of Rod Hague in our latest book, Contrasts.
New Forest & Salisbury
Rod has been on our radar for some 20 years and has an enthusiastic following in the New Forest and Salisbury. For 50 years he has been developing an array of artistic talents which have intrigued us. From his latest abstract oils, monotypes, and collage, full of fascinating texture and interest, to his well-observed watercolours of ancient buildings and Gypsy waggons.
It is hardly surprising that everyone Rod approached for a few words for the book jumped to it immediately and with great understanding and affection. They include designer and animator Barry Matthews-Keel, studio potter Michael Emmett and artists Dr. Camilla Nock RWA and Fran Donovan.
I thoroughly enjoyed researching and writing the text - it was a bigger project than we all thought - and thanks so much to Rod and Chrissie for making it possible.
