Between Black & White from Here to There
CArl E. Hazlewood
"I was a painter for many years, but more recently, my desire has been to approach abstraction in a fresh way. Most of the work I’ve produced in recent years is extemporaneous, created directly on/off the walls and floors of the gallery using materials sourced from the everyday environment. Easily available, somewhat ephemeral, these offer a multidimensional edge to what is possible for my composite objects..." - Carl E. Hazlewood
