#CARVENSEENBY Richard Haines

For its Advent Calendar, Carven gave carte blanche to 20 artists, each of whom was asked to revisit a key item in the 2018 cruise collection. To revisit few looks, Serge Ruffieux commissioned the artist Richard Haines, whose fluid drawings mix charcoal and acrylic. Who are you ?
I am an artist, a flâneur, a francophile, a father, an American by birth, a Parisian by heart and soul!
What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
Time seems to go much faster today, I do not know if it's due to age or technology. Probably both! As a child, preparing Christmas was wonderful and seemed to last forever! My parents' friends gave me an Advent Calendar that they bought in Germany. The drawings were different from those of the American calendars. they seemed really foreign to me, sweeter and dreamier. I loved to open small doors every day, the suspense leading to the 25th! Then « pop », it was over. This is another story ...
What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
I finished the outline of a book, so my dream is to find the right publisher! And my biggest artistic dream is to draw every day and continue to see inspiring things around me!
