Clare Milledge - Skara Thynge: Travelling Stock Reserves | at The Commercial

BY The Commercial | 04-Mar-2016
On the underside of toughened glass, in the inverse image of the scratching surface, in the one-note epic of the close-up, in the overlap of plant and building, in the cell or fibre palette of the bio-pigment, in the conversation between forms in space, in the consideration of material as it pings in every direction (loose and ecstatic as greasy vectors), and with the spirit and attention of what is most critical in the alien labour of art making, Milledge’s paintings trill like a radiant peel of land, linking as in a long breath different conditions for the continuation of thinking and of living. @The_Commercial_
