Description: This maquette (study) is for a Pop Art painting entitled "Elopement" which was illustrated in the catalogue of John Clem Clarke's show--Comforts, Near Disasters, and Pentimenti--at theAllentown Art Museum. Clarke plans his paintings using an overlay process similar to that used by animation artists. The top layer is the linear structure and the layer beneath the color composition. When the work is projected onto a large canvas and is painted, it transforms into a more refined object. These studies, called maquettes, are raw --sometimes slightly messy--oftimes gorgeously painted. Clarke is represented in major museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, WhitneyMuseum of American Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) and has shown with OK Harris & Meisel (NYC) and Wasserman Galeries (Munich & Cologne.) The artist's extensive auction price historyincludes recent sales from $2000-$18,000. Buyer paysshipping and insurance. Visit John Clem Clarke's Soho studio.
