Painting: Oil on Canvas.
This particular work was inspired from an article regarding current events in the Amazon rain forest. A inquiry into pressures of one the most bio-diverse places on the planet, and the ever pressing demand for its natural resources. This particular painting stemmed from the remnants of a crude site, and the volatile state it had been left in.
Clarksons recent paintings intertwine the natural world with the nature of paint. These paintings offer the viewer a chance to immerse themselves into an unfamiliar place of wonder and fascination, whilst presenting a moment to pause and be inspired by the reality of our beautiful yet fragile 'One Planet' .
Beneath the painted aesthetics, Clarksons practice echo's a sombre tone towards the shifting states of our planet, and how the cost of human intervention is impacting the natural balance of each ecosystem and the flora and fauna within it.
