Attitude: Recent Paintings by Campbell Hutchinson 

What's with the roosters anyway? Although Campbell Hutchinson paints characters, his imagery in recent times has moved more in the direction of animals, morphing from cowboys to cows and down the food chain to where we find him today, in rooster-world. As in Chinese astrology and George Orwell's novel Animal Farm, animals symbolize human traits, and Hutchinson's roosters "embody the cocky, prideful, arrogant instincts" shared by man and beast alike. Which actually makes them more like cowboys -- or faux-cowboy politicians -- than pastoral beasts such as the cows he painted in the recent past. In his other career, practicing law, Hutchinson has seen it all, and now his rooster series affirms once again the old adage that it's all happening at the ... farm. -- D. Eric Bookhardt
