Bio:

Martin Clarksons practice aims to recontextualise the tradition of landscape painting, by addressing the subject matter at a geographical level in order to explore a plethora of varying environments and ecosystems that scope the entirity of our planet.

The paintings intertwine the natural world with the nature of paint. Clarksons practice offers the viewer a chance to emmerse themselves into an unfamiliar place of wonder and fastination, whilst presenting a moment to pause and be inspired by the reality of our beautiful, balenced and fragile 'One Planet' .

Beneith the painted surface, Clarksons discourse touches upon issues concerning the shifting states of our planet, and how the cost of human intervention is impacting the natural balance of each ecosystem and flora and fauna within it.

Clarksons practice hopes to bring attention to our future situation, by using the rich historical grounding and cultural significance of landscape painting, to promote the beauty and awe of the natural world, whilst also raising awairness of what is at risk of becoming lost forever.

“ I couldn't say that art will solve everything; it won't solve anything. But there has to be a kind of amalgamation of everybody all looking in the same direction. First, you have to convince people that climate change is happening, second, what we can do about it and, finally, how long have we got? ”
