Michael Clark: Paintings from France and VeniceA virtual exhibition
These paintings celebrate my father’s enduring relationship with France and Italy. His lilac shadows, burnt umber and dusky pink evoke the hazy glow of summer evenings. A flash of ochre or an untainted cyan sky are reflective of the hot sun. Viewing his work, I can smell the delights the market has to offer, a palette of sweet French abricots and a braid of rose tinted garlic. His paintings depict life kissed by the restorative power of the sun and a chilled bottle of wine waiting to be shared among friends.
