About Alex Clarke
Incorporating painting, photographic works, text pieces and installation, Alex Clarke places a sharp focus onto the network of relationships around not only the artwork but also practices of making and dissemination. He identifies that the very reason to want to make an artwork at all can be framed by the desire to talk to one another- that both artwork and practice act as placeholders and expanded gestures of discussion or exchange. To load this most basic social mechanism with such primary value positions Clarke’s work in a vital space beyond abstraction and into real-life moments of encounter, regaining an intimacy to connection and connectivity. The result is a pluri-disciplinary practice, poetic and thoughtful at once with an aim to place the viewer in an active position with the works.
