When

Wednesdays to Saturdays, 11am to 6pm Wednesday 3 August to Saturday 27 August

Reconfiguration explores the changing subjectivities of the artist’s gaze within the language of the figure. Clarke explores a vocabulary of painterly solutions to subject matter, often rejecting linear perspective, space is defined viscerally by the figure in paint. Subjectivity slips and shifts, silhouettes emerge through trial and error of gesture.

Taking risks and playing with medium, the fluidity of paint, ink, the brittle softness of charcoal, Clarke is interested in ‘creating a process of informed experiment’. Surface becomes an archive of multiple observations; each work a collision of emotive energy where characters emerge from these acts of re- seeing and re-considering. What evolves is a generous choreography that offers new interpretations of the figure.
