Exhibition: Artefact By Daniel Clarke, Cape Town
Daniel Clarke, who illustrated the graphic novel Kariba
, which was finally published earlier this year
, is also a fine artist who paints.
99 Loop, a gallery in Cape Town, will be hosting an exhibition of his work, titled Artefact
, for a month.
Clarke describes the collection as follows:
"The fractured limbs and torsos of these figures, which came about by chance in the painting process, have in hindsight an aspect of uncertainty which I now recognise was a characterising feature of my engagement.
The incomplete gesture, the unfinished sentence, ideas half-formed, and subsequently abandoned to become in their isolation parts of a whole that never came into being - in other words, artefacts.
And now, suspended in a medium of uninterrupted colour, an even solution on which to display the discovery, they seem in their inscrutable way to have become something together that they never were alone."
