Charlie Hooker - Separate Elements

Charlie Hooker - Separate Elements

$13.00

Initially incepted in 1993, Separate Elements is the masterwork of Prof. Charlie Hooker, a Brighton-based multi-disciplinary artist whose work focuses on glass sphere recording technology and its relationship to natural elements like the wind or the sun. In the two expansively scoped pieces that make up Separate Elements, reissued with love from All Night Flight, Hooker employs a substantial yet shifting amount of sunlight to communicate these organic forces to create a score of overwhelming synthesis.

While operating as a world (of echo) of its own, Hooker's approach shares a common cause with the organic works of The Taj Mahal Travellers, Arthur Russell, and Inoyama Land, each of whom relied on the natural world and the spaces contained within to tell their stories and construct their spaces.  Believers of the Chee Shimizu mindset, and there are many, will nod to this with presence and passion.
