Neve Clarke is a Fine Artist who has spent the past 5 years working in Cornwall, and who now works in Bristol. Graduating with a First Class degree in Fine Art from Falmouth University in 2021, she specialises in printmaking. In 2022 she was awarded a place on the Cultivator graduate start up programme. Neve has shown across Cornwall at Grays Wharf , The Fish Factory, Potager Gardens, Porthmeor Studios and Tate St Ives with the Tate Collective.
Clarke produces detailed etchings, where the physicality of the marks on the metal plates are imbued with the artist's own emotional and psychological experiences. The organic subjects chosen are metaphorical and allegorical, allowing a space for unhindered and vulnerable exploration of personal lived experience. The works that result are delicate and complex ,characterised by monochromatic fine lines and detail in the natural objects that are their subjects, to evoke vast and complex universes. She draws most of her inspiration from the landscape that surrounds her, with Cornwall playing an integral part in her creative practice.
