The dark light of the forest floor inhabited with primordial memories; archetypal trees, snakes, masks, birds, wolves, horses and deer make up an imagined world that has a fleeting serenity but menacing hints of doubt.

Public Opening (Everyone Welcome)  Thursday 6th September 2018, 6-9pm

The dark light of the forest floor inhabited with primordial memories; archetypal trees, snakes, masks, birds, wolves, horses and deer make up an imagined world that has a fleeting serenity but menacing hints of doubt. 

Persian and Indian miniatures and Chinese cave paintings have for the longest time held a fascination and in these ‘drawings’ made with a fine brush using chinese white on Japanese ‘chine colle’ paper, I have tried to recreate the title of one of Paul Klee’s paintings: Ancient Sound. 

In the small canvases, a paradisiacal garden is the subject: the Tree of Life, clouds and the geometrical almond shapes created by 2 circles overlapping (vesica piscis) show where heaven and earth meet. 

Clare Newbolt was born in London in 1956. She attended Camberwell School of Art & Crafts (1973-1977) before living and painting in Italy for a year and in the USA for two years. In 2002 she had a three month residency at the Josef and Annie Albers Foundation, Connecticut, USA. In 2012 she was awarded a Doctoral Degree from the Prince's School of Traditional Arts, completing a thesis entitled 'Art is the Imitation of Nature in Her Manner of Operation'.
