Alex Clarke & Ellen Macdonald work in close proximity, having studied together at the Royal Academy Schools,
London. In 2012 they took part in a month-long residency in Sparkill, New York. Ellen’s work focuses on the process of mediation that occurs in painting, to examine the relationship between objects and actions, and how this relationship intersects with representation. Alex Clarke creates variant groups of paintings which, through a process of continuous drawing, making, editing and re-arranging, build a social dynamic of relationships, support networks, dialogues, ideas and counter-ideas from painting to painting.
