Charles Hewlings

Hay Festival Digital Article of Interest No.1

From: Sacha Craddock, Introduction to Charles Hewlings: Recent Sculptures at Kapil Jariwala Gallery, London, 1995:

“Hewlings works upside down, inside out and blind, with structures that mould and hold liquid cement until it dries. Like a relief printer, mirror writer, (or even an Impressionist painting the sky through trees) he has to create the space in between in order to let the image live; for the naked new vulnerable and nonetheless rough object to eventually emerge. Various elements – steps, rivulets, wells, gullies and holes – are used to make spaces which hint at places.”

Newell, 1993 (illustrated, both in progress and complete) was exhibited along with Land, the sculpture which inspired the drawings Land II and Land III. 

 

Both Land II and Land III are exhibited in POV ON PAPER
