"We all know the feeling, right? We are tripping over various articles, blogs, websites, and postings -- the images so fleeting, the stimulation hardly has time to set in and become real, and then another key stroke and we are down a different rabbit hole. As an artist, I am very conflicted about all this. True, I make amazing discoveries -- and yet, when hours have passed and I am still "in my pajamas" staring at the screen, my over-riding thought is: "Damn. I could have been in the studio!". So, I restrict my time online, and guard my time zealously. But, one day the gods were especially kind, and I discovered the work of Clive Hicks-Jenkins. Think -- Mood-drenched medieval tapestries, and yet.......thoroughly modern interpretations. Think -- Ancient tales of knights, squires, and woodland creatures, and yet......fresh, contemporary, and poster-esque images. Strong, forceful figures cavort in stunning compositions; surrounded by pattern that might remind you of archival textiles. He engages us in a dance that includes visual references that seem strangely-comforting and familiar (toy theaters of yore, Staffordshire dogs, heavy fringed theatrical drapes) and inserts figures (people, animals, mythic creatures) who are dynamic, fluid, and vital. Inter-weaving "here and now" with "far and away"; this accomplished artist conquers the worlds of Print, Collage, Assemblage, Drawing -- and every work of art has narrative power and visual impact. A master story-teller and generous spirit who shares his passions eagerly. This beautiful, hefty book provided deep insight into the artist, from various viewpoints (including the artist himself) and shows a vast array of work. A lavish banquet indeed!"
