BIOGRAPHY 0 product

Terence Clarke was born in 1953 and studied Fine Art at Lancaster Polytechnic from 1971 - 75, going on to complete a Masters Degree at The Royal College of Art from 1976 - 79. Terence began exhibiting his paintings directly on leaving College with various galleries in London.
Terence's work is characterised by strong drawing and the use of bold colour and is highly regarded for its composition. His landscapes and still life's are richly worked with a subtle and expressive use of paint, with influences ranging from Cezanne and Matisse, to the Scottish Colourists.
Terence Clarke stands in a tradition of artists who have continued to explore and extend figurative painting as a vehicle for the enjoyment of sheer visual delight. His motifs are simple yet vivid, often filled with an intense light, influenced by his extended periods of work in France. This gives his pieces a Mediterranean feel, making it popular with collectors across Europe and the Americas.
Clarke currently spends the majority of his time working in the South of France, painting breathtaking views around Cap Ferrat, Cote d'Azur, and completing commissions such as a recent full-wall mural at a private collector's home in Monaco.
