“Most experiences are unsayable, they happen in a space that no word has ever entered, and more unsayable than all other things are works of art.” - Rainer Maria Rilke.
Guyana-born multimedia artist, Carl E. Hazlewood, continues his recent approach of making work for a particular exhibition space. WEIGHTS AND MEASURES is a ‘high-wire act’ between the ephemeral and the permanent; it balances a weightiness of effect against a measured lightness of presentation. The artist says, “I seek the natural ‘poetry’ found in various everyday materials and whatever ‘significant’ formal structures that can be activated by the combination of materials, artist, and viewer.”
