Item Description

 

Looking for that special piece for the one place that is 'missing' something?!! 

The vibrancy of this piece is what Clark is known for, and IS that 'missing' piece in your collection. 

Athlone Clarke was born in Jamaica in 1956 and immigrated to the United States in 1985. During the mid 80’s he made his living as a free-lance writer and also painted during this period. In the years that followed his writing established a relationship with his visual work and eventually gave birth to an exciting, colorful, mixed media off-spring.  He believes that the work should be capable of provoking emotions, whether positive or negative, and that indifference is poison to the artist. 


This artist has been followed by collectors nationally, as well as internationally, and he believes that the "language of art does not always have to be cloaked in professorial codes that are cleverly hidden in intimidating abstractions, nor does it always have to be safe and comfortable."

He thrives on experimentation and is a firm believer that there is no “have to” in art. His mixed media journey allows for a rich amalgam of found objects that seem to have chosen him to interpret their stories, in as much as he has chosen them.

Clarke states that at the end of the day, “the work should be capable of standing completely on it’s own, and therefore more eloquent than anything that could be written describing it”.
