Biography

ANGELA CLARKE

 

Current work 'SIRENS' explores inspiration from literature. Homer's

'The Odyssey' introduces us to the Sirens. Their names have been used as a catalyst for calligraphic opportunities for form and colour within the

paintings. It is an opportunity to explore possibilities for a lyrical abstraction located in the Mediterranean.

 

Other explorations of long term current practise involve directional drawn responses of 'Vertices 3' and ' Panorama of Love and Grief' and 'Pause' where graphite tonality records time and response to the trauma of deep emotional experience of grief, in all three projects.

 

A number of strategies have been employed, the results of which have been regularly exhibited in galleries, and public spaces as Murals resulting from residencies at schools and Youth clubs and finally as Publications and Commissions.
