Carl Patow

Carl Patow is a multimedia artist who identifies issues of contemporary social importance and engages viewers through images, dialogue and creativity. Objects, such as legal documents, food, or written phrases are frequently catalysts for discussion. Conversations are documented through writing, drawing or audio recording, and become the basis for gallery and public installations.
In response to the COVID pandemic he has turned to photography as his primary artistic modality, through multilayered photographic images and an ongoing project documenting transformation of Carytown, Richmond, Virginia.
He received his MFA in Kinetic Imaging from VCU in Richmond, VA in 2019, and has received awards for film, video, interactive art and continuing education programs, locally, regionally and nationally.
His approach is, at its heart, a means to expand intercultural understanding and community.
He is the founder of Time and Light Laboratories, an experimental arts center in Richmond, Virginia.
