What a treat! I love when you’re looking through gallery website, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. and you run across an artist who’s work is unlike anything you’ve run across. Can you imagine with millions of people painting how difficult it would be to pull off your own style? Each painting is a treat for the senses.
Meet Conrad P. Clarke, an artist from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (UK) with a fresh perspective that comes across fresh and lively in his paintings. He can paint the most ordinary of subjects and give it so much beauty. His paintings are a bit abstract and realistic at the same time. They simply glow with beauty and gorgeous colors and tones. It seems like painting this would be similar to an intense puzzle, with so many pieces to orchestrate. Yet, Conrad does it so well.

About the Artist (via conradpclarke.com):
Conrad Clarke is an award winning artist living and working in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. His work draws inspiration from the natural world around him and often focuses on the interaction between plants and their environment. By carefully layering bold and muted colours, as well as textures, pattern and delicate detail, he manages to encapsulate the beauty and complexities of different ecologies, as well as breathing new life into contemporary landscape painting.
While the subject of his work is clearly rooted in reality, it is his contemporary approach and aesthetic that gives his work its distinct and unique feel. By reimagining these natural scenes with a sensitivity to detail, his depiction of a figurative reality can also induce abstracted sensibilities into otherwise ordinary practice.
Conrad continually seeks out new inspiration for his work from the natural world, as well as honing in on the unique details that define each place. Often it is the simple and seemingly mundane elements of a landscape, that he aims to showcase in a new and inquisitive light.
I hope you enjoyed viewing Conrad’s work as much as I did. Absolutely gorgeous!
