ARTIST INFO

About 

Currently based in Brooklyn, Clarke (b. 1988) was born in Chicago and has exhibited her work in numerous exhibitions in the United States and internationally. Clarke's practice explores themes of memory, mystery, and the passing of time. The results are surreal, haunting, almost theatrical paintings. In her most recent solo exhibition at Margot Samel, The Night Grows Long, Clarke taps into Victorian Era concepts of childhood, the threshold of girlhood, and one’s proximity to mortality throughout these transitory phases of life.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

“These two works on paper were inspired by childhood memories celebrating Halloween. My mom was very festive around this particular holiday. Growing up in Chicago, we once turned our basement into a haunted house for the neighborhood kids to walk through, and my siblings and I would end Halloween night watching old scary movies with the trick or treat candy we collected. These memories have contributed to my appreciation of the unknown and mysterious side of life.”
