Seth Clark’s Painted Ladies

Tuesday, August 10, 2010 · 1 Comment

I’m a sucker for art of houses and buildings (as is evident here and here) so naturally I’m digging Seth Clark’s paintings (via dear ada).

This is not complicated, cerebral art, and some might argue that it’s actually rather boring (there are no figures, no bold intellectual concepts, no hallucinogenic abstractions). Obviously there is the issue of talent: there’s plenty of bad art in every genre. But I would argue that the subject of the home is so emotionally rich, so memory-laden and provides such a close reflection of our lives that it is one of those eternally relevant subjects.
