Francesco Clemente: Mandala for Crusoe

Image coming soon.

Dr. Janet McKenzie reviews the exhibition Francesco Clemente: Mandala for Crusoe at Blain|Southern, London, on view through January 26, 2013.

McKenzie writes that this "is a unique body of work, for its esoteric and enigmatic use of symbol and visual narrative. They allude to everything from Thomas Carlyle’s Victorian culture… As sage or mediator Clemente here asserts opposites such as the sublime and the ridiculous as a plea to break down artistic and religious hierarchies. In contrast to the muted palette of the 14 large paintings in the Blain Southern exhibition, the colours in the mandala paintings are both richer and deeper, and have the quality of Oriental carpets, or magical gardens."
