Paintings and Stories
New Work by John Clark
The world is sodden with narrative in film, in photography, in games and elsewhere in the media. The art world too has its stories, although they tend to take a more reflexive form. Taken together they present an enormous challenge if, like me, you're interested in narrative painting. Questions of futility must naturally arise. The work on this exhibition plots my recent path through this tricky but entertaining terrain, ranging from the lighhearted to the sombre. I hope you enjoy some of it.
