Shifting from close-up observation to imagined horizons, Clarke combines the depiction of natural forms with memory and symbolism.
“On the coastal path in Cornwall, I noticed a piece of gorse that reminded me of an arm and hand raised to frame a section of sky and sea. Small elements such as leaves, dry branches, roots and grasses often catch my eye. Drawn to their complexity and power of association, it is this initial encounter that is the starting point for the journey in to making a painting.” Clarke 2015
