BOLD ABSTRACT 2
Gary Andrew Clarke is a digital artist and painter. He lives in Manchester, England. The central preoccupation of his work is one of creating simple flirtatious encounters between geometric shapes and beautiful intense flat fields of colour. They are often visual puns that might perhaps be elegant solutions to non-existent problems. Ideas evolve out of stream of consciousness pencil sketching. A fascination with the magical neatness of the golden proportion often informs the overall structure of the work, its internal shapes, and the relationships between the two. The choice of colours is of huge importance, and much effort is dedicated to finding the perfect partnership for each work. Colour combinations are deliberately curious. His work has no meaning whatsoever, and is intentionally non-representational. To quote Frank Stella, "What you see is what you see." His art is borne out of a love of the ideas found in the 1960s-70s Hard Edge & Geometric Abstraction scenes. The art of Albers, Bayer, Claisse, Benjamin, Bill, and Noland are particularly influential.
GARY ANDREW CLARKE
Gary Andrew Clarke is know for his graphic images developed in the late 2000's. His art became widely noticed in 2009, with a series based on well-known works of art reduced down to a simple grid of colored circles. Clarke's background in Graphic Art from the Manchester Polytechnic (later Manchester Metropolitan University) enabled him to create bold, colorful images that catch the eye and define a space.
