Masking Our Descent
Concurrently on view in the project room, we are excited to welcome back Anthony Clarkson with his new body of work, Masking Our Descent.
Anthony Clarkson graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art in 2002 and shortly thereafter moved to the City Of Angels. Clarkson's work revisits the drawing style of his youth, mixed with the feelings and dark emotions he has dealt with throughout his adult life.
Clarkson's art has been showcased in several galleries in the United States including Copro Gallery, DvA Gallery, Gallery 1988 and Cannibal Flower. Exhibitions of note include special curated exhibitions that were dedicated to Mattel/Hot Wheels, Marvel Comics (hosted by Stan Lee) and Crazy for Cult 2 (hosted by Kevin Smith). Clarkson was also featured in the 'Intersections' show at the Cypress College that took place during the spring of 2008.
Clarkson's vision continues to expand as his paintings evolve into more intense expressions of his own dark thoughts.
