Carle Hessay
Canadian artist



Carle Hessay “absorbed the artistic energies that characterized the 1960s," according to art critic Leonard A. Woods, who wrote Meditations on the Paintings of Carle Hessay (Trabarni, 2005).

His dynamic paintings include abstracts, urban scenes, landscapes of the deep BC wilderness, ethnic, mythological, and biblical scenes, as well as Future World images.

In this photo of Carle Hessay in his former studio in Langley, BC, some of his small abstract paintings are strung on a line on the wall behind him.
