Detail of Kangaroo Court

Steven Hazard blends realism and imagination in this series of etchings. His use of light, line and shadow give a mysterious cast to these heavily symbolic images.

In one series he uses animals to represent the many flavors of human wickedness. The animal symbols are engaging and instantly recognizable, putting a humorous face on serious messages. We see them cope with corruption, greed, conspicuous consumption, and relentless technological advancement. As their guides, they can only trust in the modern gods of science, medicine, and the media.

Other pieces, like "The Overpass" and "The Riverboat," create richly textured spaces that draw the viewer in to their complex universe. It is a universe full of surprises.
