Hazle's pictorial language is naturally and effortlessly intertwined by his adaptation of sensuous linear shapes and patterns. He uses colour harmoniously as an evocation of mood and atmosphere. His figures are rendered simplistically to provide a stark contrast to the mysterious, animalistic, mask like faces, revealing his subjects in their entirety, body and soul.
The viewer’s attention is drawn into the psychological embodiment of Hazle's work, insinuated by the re-occurring expressive subjects and environmental setting of man, woman, fertile earth and mystery that suggest ancient archetypes.
