Hadley Rodebeck’s work explores surreal and vivid moments from dreams and real life to enact raw truth and permanence in fleeting moments. Shanker writes in his book, Don’t Forget to Breathe, “Each form is inadequate, like a graft to be rejected by its intractable and unrelenting host and thus can only serve a brief and momentary purpose coherent to a context rooted in contiguous reason”. Inviting viewers to be a part of ephemeral moments, Rodebeck paints in a reductive style, where different layers conceal and reveal historical marks and varying subtleties within the work. Several bodies of her work are made quickly, these efforts are intended to evoke a human reaction to live thought processes representing the mutability of our brains and memories and the fragility of our lives. Originally an editorial and print designer, Rodebeck considers sketching an important part of her process, aiming to develop a concept much further than intuition could alone. Rodebeck paints in a drawerly fashion, where gestural, full-body strokes bring life, energy and motion to her large-scale paintings. In addition to action and representation of dissipating moments, the object of creating in the medium of a painting makes a once temporary moment an eternal one.
