Recent Quotes

“I hope something good comes of your exhibition, this is probably not of any help or relevance – but – of the images in the catalogue “Raft” and “Venus de Medici statue” worked for me….” Frank Auerbach 2019

"He has, most certainly, found a way of working that allows him to draw and paint his experiences of things in an utterly truthful way” Nicholas Usherwood 2019

"Clossick’s painting asserts its significance through the vigour with which it is invoked in the constructed morphology of the paint surface” Dr Eric Coombes 2019

"His is the moving and heuristic gaze, the act of discovering of the world through the exploration of possibilities.” “Speak of the uncertainties, anxieties and mysteries of existence of our time. He makes us feel the present, the here and now of our being in the world, the joy and the anguish of life in moments of heightened sensation. This is never a simple description of the outer skin of things, but rather a multi-layered reality.” Corinna Lotz 2018
