Clive Head in Residency at Waterhouse & Dodd London


From 16th - 20th July 2019, Clive will relocate his studio to our London gallery where visitors can meet the artist, watch him work and discuss his methods and inspirations.


Clive Head’s work is concerned with expressing his reality – a culmination of observation, lived experience, fears and fantasies, achieved by the re-interpretation of conventional perspective and his subject. In recent years Clive has sought a more intuitive approach to painting, allowing rhythm to permeate the labyrinthine web of images forming his compositions. He allows himself to be led by instinct in application of both colour and brushstroke. As we study the paintings, swans, cats and, in this case, elephants emerge from his canvases in bisecting lines and over-riding contours; these forms are testament to the level of improvisation Clive has developed in his practice, as they are integrated only as and when they occur to him whilst painting.
