Carl Heyward, brasseur, agitateur – un regard éloigné, une rencontre étonnante

J’ai rencontré Carl Heywards il y a peu de temps. Il est arrivé, à un carrefour de FB, dans l’espace arpenté par les artistes, un lieu différent aux multiples corridors, où des artistes tissent ...
Il est apparu tel une tempête, avec à ses côtés des centaines d’artistes dont il collecte, publie, raconte le travail. Des artistes qu’il interroge dans la trame de leur art avec divers projets qui impliquent une spontanéité et une ouverture.* Il a un talent/expérience/ parcours reconnu, mais il semble proche des artistes émergents qu’il rencontre au travers de ses expériences collectives.

Carl Heywards n’est pas un artiste narcissique, il écoute et partage. Il ouvre des chemins. Remue les territoires endormis.

Son travail porte aussi en lui cette ouverture. Placé au carrefours des cultures, son travail raconte le métro, la route, les combats. La force de l'art dans la toumente.puis l'ouverture. Au travers d’une oeuvre sensible ou le passé parle aussi, au travers de papiers et matières qu’il collecte. Où le questionnement rencontre le jeu, démonte les artifices.
Il semble qu’il soit un vrai passeur. Pour les autres et dans son œuvre.

Carl Heyward: brewer, agitator - a distant look

I met Carl Heyward recently. He arrived at a crossroads of FB in the area surveyed by the artists, a different place with many corridors, where artists weave and stir and conjure.

He came like a storm, and at his side, hundreds of artists he collects, publishes, and supports in a variety of projects. He has involved diverse artists in various creative projects that involve spontaneity and openness. Heyward is an established artist, his talent is widely recognized, but he remains close to emerging artists he's met through his collective experiences and continues to nurture.

Carl Heyward is not a narcissistic artist, he listens and shares. He opens paths; awakens sleeping territories .

His work places him squarely in the center of this opening. Placed at the crossroads of cultures, his work speaks of the metro, the road, of conflict, of the topical and the ethereal. The power of art is the testament and is the opening. His is a sensitive work where the past speaks through papers, hands, glue, gestures and in the materials he collects.

He seems to be a true traveler, a transporter of time moving through meaning and imagery.Translation Carl Heywards

Une question, pour mieux rencontrer...

You work in various projects that connect artists from around the world through social networks and beyond. I have seen your activity starts beautiful circulations.? I feel that connect people in the movement is part of your artistic work. Standing relationship "between" is an open space where your work is created. Can you tell us more?

Carl Heyward :I am energized by the reciprocal process of giving and taking...giving to receive...energized in that I am constantly learning new techniques, new media, new ways to see, learning and growing and by sharing that enthusiasm I continue to grow, and not just as an artist, but as a human being.
After many years of image making I begin to see the connection between seeing, doing, thinking; that the execution of a concept is dependent upon numerous factors that can combine seamlessly to produce a work that is informed by intellectual, psychic, moral, spiritual even political ambitions because all of these factors and more are elements of reality and shared experience filtered through subjective perception and selection; of choice and sensitivity...of seeing and being.
I feed off the energy of collaborative investigation, the seeking is the object; technical excellence is of course important, but the act of gathering and respecting the place of connection at various levels of accomplishment is both humbling and rewarding.
Perhaps I am a social hermit; one who values the virtues of absolute solitude and personal isolation while simultaneously drawn to the benefit of selective group interaction, just another conflicted human being, actually...
