Reading Red Cape, 2021, Oil on Panel
Paint on panel
Clark Graff is a retired architect who has taken up brushes again to render beauty, quiet, and strength in the New England landscape and its buildings: farmhouses, barns, and mill buildings that originally inspired him in his work as an architect. Working and living in Thetford Ctr. where he had his design practice, Clark is pleased to continue to organize spaces and structures while keeping an eye on the influences of light and color. He is finding working with paint on small boards offers opportunities for expression that are a bit more wide-ranging and less constrained than when his ideas guided carpenters, plumbers and concrete and his decisions impacted bank accounts and building schedules.
