Anhang's work is producing an Electronic Crépin that pioneers
in electrifying ART BRUT and giving it an entirely original day and
night-time presence. CRÉPINS images, so static, are turned
into mobiles and indeed into videos and movies!
When Montreal Artist, William Anhang, came across Crépins
Exhibition Catalogue 2000 it resulted in devotion at first sight!
Why such an interlocking moment?
From a Spiritual point of view, it is destiny, synchronicity, charm
From a Worldly point of view, it is the geometry, symmetry and arcane
mathematics of Crépin's art that bare a marked resemblance
to the light emitting diode art of Anhangs work. Until then,
Anhang had been practising in solitude, but now, this recognition
resulted in a camaraderie between these two explorers and portrayers
of intertwined dimensions!
Even more, these works by Crépin were truly the blueprints
needed to link the contemporary technology of microprocessors, light
emitting diodes, fibre optics into one-continuous stream of light,
magically devoted to the very ends Crépin envisioned.
By the dawn of the millennium, Crépin had invested the last
ten years of his life to making an impact in the cultural/historic
scene, he endevoured to tilt the balance of destructiveness to constructiveness,
which contemporary science dearly needed, and still does.
like Crépin, is a many talented individual. Born in Poland,
raised on a Canadian Prairie farm, schooled as an engineer, a practising
plumber, mechanic, a dimensional explorer, self made "art brut"
artist, and above all, a Spiritualist to whom ASTONISHING INSIGHTS
To Anhang, Crépin stands as the Patron Saint of the Computer
Age. In the same way as Leonardo Da Vinci stood, centuries ago,
as a Gateway to science, aviation, medical devices and the harnessing
of inanimate energy, Crépin with his millions of coloured
dots and spaces is identifiably the Patron Saint of the Computer
Anhang's first transformations of Crépin's work happened
in the winter of 2001.
|He partook in his own works of that epoch, rotating globes, sliding
globes and Leonardian twirlers. All this, somehow, fitted into the
"Grand Plan"; to generating no less than a new sort of energy, sometimes
called this and sometimes that, and most recently exalted as "Enriched
Just prior and following September 11, 2001, the picture where Crépin
stands self-portrayed in a halo
of flower crosses was repeated many times with a variety of
faces, as sort of a living testimonial to achievement of one sort
or another. . . .
The ultimate evolution of this sequence led to the Twin
Tower Memorial, and went further to The Dream Orchestra
wherein a Crépin space is constructed with a full backdrop
of tapestries and rotors, as a major tribute to Fleury Joseph Crépin.
Out of this work of art, mankind has been bestowed with its newest
Musical Instrument: the PianYes,
with Bill Anhang as the Worlds First PianYes player.
Bill Anhang's motivation issues from a REALITY REDEFINING EXPERIENCE
that occurred to him during a performance of Mozart's Requiem on
Sept. 11, 2002 at St. Joseph's Basilica. With the sounds of the
Grand Choir de Montréal, and Martin Deganais conducting,
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart made a most palpable but invisible
appearance, to how many people in the audience is not known, but
certainly to Bill Anhang.
In addition to our Amadeus, other illustrious ones participated
in this Astonishing Spiritual Manifestation, one Agnon, Beethoven
and out of this has emanated the effort to stage
a Memorial Site on the Internet, to shatter the accepted definition
of death and replace it with a Crépin Spirituality
With Billions on the planet unquestionably awaiting their
reward, there really is nothing more pressing than to alter
attitudes about the nature of Life It-Self.
It is not a mere matter of Resurrection but of realising
the Foundation, House, Roof and Sky of the Human Species, if not
of every living entity on the planet and in the entire universe.
What better evolution for Crépin than to move into the Tree
Is that the message behind the Crépinesque facades he presents
us all through the 350 memorials, The Secret Message to take us
beyond reason's tyranny?
Can we honestly enquire, "FLEURY JOSEPH, are you there?" Come forth,
show yourself as Amadeus did . . . . It gets easier with use .
