“A Place I Know” is London-based artist Murray Clarke’s first solo exhibition in Asia. The exhibition showcases Clarke’s contemplation on the dichotomy of emotion between commercialisation and mass consumption of fabric and clothing by exploring on depicting familiar fabric in realistic painting. Featuring 8 oil paintings that he created this year, A Place I Know will be on view from October 12 – December 2, 2023, at WOAW Gallery Singapore.
Each artwork exudes a magnetic quality, akin to vivid photography that beckons the audience to reach out and connect with the cherished object depicted. Whether it is the allure of a gracefully arranged, soft blanket on a chair or the comforting touch of knitted fabric, Clarke’s artworks offer a glimpse into his personal experiences while simultaneously reflecting our own interactions with the comforting embrace of these objects.
Venue: WOAW Gallery, 4 Ann Siang Hill, Singapore 069786
