christopher clack

"Christopher Clack is a rare and precious talent, one of those rare visionary oddities that England has a habit of throwing forth. His work, although he has been committed to it for many years is rarely exhibited, their is a genuine religious or spiritual motivation in his work, it has always been there, it’s the driving force for what he does and strangely may have contributed towards its neglect in the past.
Now it seems that the use of religious imagery is fashionable/acceptable in the art world, but Christopher is not just using religious images , its not ironic or tongue-in-cheek or a re-hashing of what’s gone before, he wants to re-asses it, to find the meaning in it again, to make it new and meaningful for us now. This has nothing to do with any Christian orthodoxy, he as never been part of any church or religious group. I think he wants to find what ‘the Religious’ have lost, and maybe, at the moment, only art can do that.’
