Queens Chronicle on Carl E. Hazlewood: TRAVELER

By November 6, 2017February 18th, 2019No Comments

“Sprawling at fifty-two feet long, Carl Hazlewood’s “Traveler” is a curiosity: A work that would demand your attention in any great room, the mural sits in a narrow hallway at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth. There it works differently, drawing the viewer in and out, causing passersby to pause, stay awhile and reflect. The entirety of the mural is impossible to take in from any single vantage point, and so the artist’s title is in part a reflection of this reality — to appreciate the work requires the viewer to move up and down the corridor; to become the traveler. In Hazlewood’s words, the piece “will have to be … discovered as one moves (or travels) parallel to the mural.””
