September Brings Abstraction to Art du Jour Gallery

Rondo in Color, painting by Millie Clarke

Rondo in Color, by Millie Clarke

Millie Clarke Millie Clarke, Featured Artist for September at Art du Jour Gallery, will show her new collection of vibrant acrylic abstract art. Clarke’s work has been described as “having wild spontaneity but with controlled esthetics”. She is noted for using colors in imaginative ways and in employing texture to add interest to her pieces. In her new collection, Clarke uses one foot by four feet canvases. The interspacing of straight bars over her creations provides the viewer with “windows” into the painting. These works may be hung vertically or horizontally.

 

The exhibit includes a large 30” x 40” work titled “Rondo in Color.” This piece is a fusion of paint-handling techniques which Clarke uses that includes scraping, scratching and wiping. The plane of a large painted area gains tension from her use of shaped and scratched smaller blocks of contrasting color.
