Ece Clarke

Ece Clarke states that Cul­ture and Reli­gion are cen­tral to her devel­op­ment as an artist. Born in Istan­bul and edu­cated in Turkey and Ger­many, later living in the Far East, the Middle East, and now res­i­dent in London, she has been involved in and affected by dif­fer­ent cul­tures at each stage. Her work con­cerns itself with the real­ity of exis­tence and links to her other inter­ests in sci­ence and the uni­verse, the ele­ments of nature and other nat­u­rally occur­ring forms. The work is what it is, with its own sombre pres­ence, char­ac­ter and grav­ity. It is non-rep­re­sen­ta­tional, a com­bi­na­tion of paper and other ele­ments, stand­ing on its own merits.
