Photo of Rod Hayslip

In his paintings, Rod Hayslip focuses on the visual richness of people and places.  He seeks the narratives of life where every element of human diversity can be found woven together—in the cities.  These rhythms of everyday life are fused to the visual patterns of movement and light.  

Hayslip utilizes pigments in oils, acrylics and latex—often on the same piece—to paint highly orchestrated urban scenes.  The line between painter and theatrical producer seems to blur as he stages his lead actors and supporting cast.  He frequently choses high, almost aerial, vantage points for his compositions.  These created stories assume a life of their own once they leave the studio as each following viewer imagines a narrative of their own making.  

Rod Hayslip received a Bachelor of Art Education from the Ohio State University.  He is a nationally awarded contemporary artist who has studied with Pheoris West, Mark Gingrich and Jerry Weiss.  Hayslip is also a signature member of the American Impressionist Society.  He currently resides in Delaware County, Ohio.
