Damian Clarke - Acrylic and ink drawings

Damian aims to exhibit his painted drawings alongside his music, wherever possible

The painted and ink drawings show responses to the many walks in areas, such as Cumbria and Dartmoor and Dorset, that he loves to explore.

Often these walks result in musical ideas or visual images that are then allowed to grow and change until they develop into a new visual or musical idea. A walk is a line and like a drawn line, it changes its character and the mood of the walker.

Damian likes to highlight small, often insignificant features of the landscape and give them a new presence. He is also fascinated by gradual change and often concentrates on places where the edges become blurred, where natural objects grow into each other. Is this how cultures work too?

Damian is an admirer of Richard Long, Andy Goldsworthy and David Nash who work with the landscape, drawing our eyes to natural beauty.

Some works are intended as triptychs to be sold together.  Prices shown do not include delivery, which can be discussed before purchase.

Some sold works are included. A commission for a similar painting to these would be welcomed
