Cathleen Clarke

Cathleen Clarke’s work is inspired by childhood and the enigmas that surround it. The artist explores themes of memory, mystery, and the passing of time through subjects that appear distorted. Each layer of paint interprets a moment in time that would have otherwise been overlooked or forgotten, evoking a reminiscence that is fading away. In this way, the reference becomes only a small piece in Clarke’s process, and the end result is the memory and feeling she had from it. Clarke received her BFA in Painting and Drawing from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA in 2014. She has exhibited across the US and internationally; more recently at spaces such as Lila Pepino Gallery in France, Woman Made Gallery in Chicago and at the Affordable Art Fair in New York. She also held two solo shows in San Francisco: If You Ever Make it Home at 625 Sutter Gallery and Apparitions at Alley Cat Gallery. In 2018 Clarke was chosen as a finalist for the Hopper Prize Award and earned an Honorable Mention Award for the Midwest Open Show at Woman Made Gallery. In 2019, Clarke was an artist in residence at the NARS Foundation, Brooklyn.
