Bio

My love affair with collecting papers (especially with text) began when I was a child. I had the wacky notion that if I carefully stored them under my bed that, by osmosis,I would learn to read. My work is all about paper(s): torn, coloured, layered every imaginable kind. Over the years I have collected scores of paper, photographs and small artifacts. What most inspires me as subject matter are everyday objects I live with, abandoned scraps of wood and metal, random newspaper articles, practically anything discarded and considered not useful. Born in Montreal, Canada, Halifax-based artist Kit Clarke is a graduate of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Central Technical School in Toronto and Art Institute of Chicago.



Description of artist's work
