Robert Clinch - Lithographs - Touring Four Victorian Galleries
Catalogue printed in 2007 to coincide with the regional touring exhibition.
Robert Clinch is a city dweller who finds his inspiration among man made places. Arresting in their detailed realism, the images in these masterly lithographs and their companion drawings can be traced to know buildings and places. So where does the myth come in? Look closer and you'll find that they are not mere visual transcriptions, Technically brilliant as they be. Visual metaphors and puns have been deliberately placed, for these are visual myths, fictions created out of what is seductively real.
