I create in collage everything from maps, labels, and discarded tickets to garments crafted from gift wrapping, musical scores, and love letters. My objective is to turn ordinary printed matter into exquisite works of art with character, beauty, and wit.
Whether it’s at a car boot sale in Chiswick, an antiques fair in Sussex, or further afield to flea markets in France, the United States, Japan, and India, I travel far and wide for source materials for my next pieces.
About the Artist
Born in Yorkshire, England, in 1944, Peter Clark studied at Manchester College of Art and Design from 1962 to 1966. In addition to having had a prolific career in design and illustration (notably holding senior positions at Granada Television/London and Manchester and NBC/Los Angeles), Peter Clark has had numerous freelance commissions for advertising, editorial, television, and publishing throughout the world. In 1999, he began creating his first commissioned collages. From then on, demand for his work snowballed, leading him to become a full-time artist with works in private and public collections worldwide.
Based in London, Peter Clark has exhibited his work in that city, as well as in Sydney, Australia; Ketchum (Idaho), Los Angeles (California), and New York City (New York), United States; Apeldoorn, Germany; Milan, Italy; and Rijswik, Holland. Some galleries that have shown his collages are Gabriele Skelton Ltd. (London), Rebecca Hossack Gallery (London), and Paul Smith (New York City). He is represented by Portland Gallery in London and has placed work with Gilman Contemporary in Idaho.
Peter Clark’s collages can be seen in May 2020 in “Just Trying to Have Me Some Fun” at Portland Gallery.
