Description: Two maquettes (studies) for the diptych Zooming Airplanes. John Clem Clarke plans his paintings using an overlay process similar to that used by animation artists. The top layer of the overlay is the linear structure and the layer beneath the colorcomposition. By the time the work is projected onto a large canvas, it becomes a much more refined object. These studies, called maquettes, are raw--sometimes slightly messy--oftimes gorgeously painted. If you enjoy the process of making art, themaquettes are perfect for you. Clarke uses illustration-type techniques to give motion to these delightfully diving airplanes. Clarke is well-represented in major museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American ArtandMetropolitan Museum of Art (New York) and has exhibited at galleries such as OK Harris & Meisel (NYC) and Wasserman Galeries (Munich & Cologne.) The artist also has a extensive auction price history; recent prices range from $2000-$18,000. Buyer paysshipping and insurance. Visit John Clem Clarke's Soho studio.
