Geoffrey Clarke at the RA

Yesterday I had a great afternoon at the RA Summer Show. As  I was leaving with ten minutes to go before it closed, and thinking I’d  seen everything there was to see, I caught sight of the sculpture room (which was actually hard to miss!). I walked to the center of the room and did a 360 overview and … there was a Geoffrey Clarke piece on the wall. It was a piece I knew, TAUNTON DEANE CREMATORIUM TEST PANEL. (Item No 993 in the exhibition).

It’s better seen live, but all the work in the Summer Exhibition can be seen here.

Due to the wonderful photography of Walter Dirks we have some great photos of pieces of Geoffrey Clarke’s sculpture ‘Extraction and Refining of Oil‘. The beginning of a project to record the work …
