Piers Clemett

I'm a painter, printmaker and illustrator working with traditional and digital media. Paintings are done primarily in oil or watercolour. I paint from life. Observation and drawing is important. It's about trying to understand what the eyes see, to grasp it for a short time before the sensation is gone. The spacial, tonal and colour relationships between an arrangement of found objects combine to weave a two-dimensional reality, which is always ephemeral. The light is constantly changing. Everything is in flux. When it works it approaches a visual poem.
