Regarded by many as a major contemporary religious artist, Peter Clare produces works of art that spring from a profound and essentially Christian experience of life. His paintings are praised for their powerful visual impact, their deep emotional content, rich colour and vigorous line, and above all for their compassionate spirituality.
‘At first glance his very simple rotund draughtsmanship with its full ovals, curves and rare straight line can seem childlike, even obvious. But it grows organically from the heart and, with time, conveys a warm satisfaction and peace…Peter Clare’s passion and belief, together with his unselfconscious and honest expression, comes as unexpectedly today as it is welcome.’ The Guardian
Peter Clare has long developed a taste for telling stories visually in a way that deconstructs time and cross relates events. Such an approach is an important element in much of his work and contributes greatly to the vitality and richness of his works.
