Guidelines by Rod Hague

Background

Brought up on the edge of the New Forest, Rod has been drawing and painting from an early age. He went on to study at Salisbury College of Art in the 1960’s following which, alongside painting, there were a variety of jobs until the early 1980’s when art became his full time occupation.

Two distinct approaches to his work developed –

The first being Representational Watercolour paintings carried out on location where primarily the subject matter is of old and interesting buildings, plus recording all types of Gipsy and Showman’s Waggons in restorers and makers yards.

His second approach is producing Contemporary Artworks in a variety of media, including printing methods, often inspired by Ancient Tribal Artefacts and Medieval Images. The robust might of heavy industrial machinery with the repetitive images arising from mass production have also been a source of inspiration for him.

Exhibitions

Throughout his artistic journey Rod’s work has been exhibited in a number of galleries and shown in many exhibitions, including several solo shows.
