Agness Clark is a Hastings based artist and photographer.
Originally from Poland, she graduated with Master Degree in 2001 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland majoring in Ceramics and Sculpture.
Previously she was educated in the High School of Art where she had been drawn to a wide range of art practices including photography, drawing, painting, graphic design and sculpture. During this period, she also learnt dark room techniques and developed a big passion for photography.
After completing her degree Agness moved to the UK to continue her education. During her period in London Agness exhibited her work in several galleries across the UK and actively enjoyed creative interdisciplinary exploration.
Her creative mind doesn’t allow her to limit herself to one single discipline and she finds it easy to jump between different creative fields. Her work is spontaneous and intuitive, coming from the inner need to create art.
Agness recent work explores the inner conversation between her two big passions; photography and painting.
She loves experimenting with different surfaces and textures. She uses thick layers of paint, texturing pastes, carbon paper, sawdust and others materials.
She digitally collaborates elements of photography and pictures of her paintings to give the pieces distinguished three-dimensional visual effect.
She loves working with rich, vibrant colours, overlapping layers and textures. The project presented here reflects her personal moments and their direct correlation to every day emotional experiences. As such her art is spontaneous, intuitive and allows her almost unlimited freedom of creative expression.
She wants to stimulate the viewer to reach their own conclusions about what the symbolism of her work may represent.
