Artist Statement for Hap Hagood

Carving in a contemporary style in wood and stone, Hap Hagood strives to capture the very essence of his wildlife subjects. Leaving out what he considers non-essential detail, Hap feels he can best express this inner spirit with a looser, more impressionistic interpretation. Also harboring the belief that all art is born of the soul, Hap’s intention is to release the spirit from within the wood or stone, while capturing the spirit of the animal, and expressing the spirit found within himself.
