    About The Work

    In a catalogue for his Canfield Hatfield series, artist David Salle writes: “Professor Canfield Hatfield was a supposedly real-life character who… [worked] as a paid maker of rain for drought-stricken communities in the West—a high-wager kind of job and by extension a useful metaphor for the relationship between risk, hope, and fraud that enter into any art-making or rain-making situation.” While these concepts are rather abstract, they nonetheless play out in this enigmatic work, as the viewer is challenged to either devise a narrative from the disparate elements, or else find consolation in its uncertainty.
