To Ithaka: Mark Cazalet exhibition, Clare Hall, University of Cambridge

Description

Clare Hall Art Committee is delighted to present an exhibition of work by artist Mark Cazalet, running from 7 October-18 November 2021.

Our first exhibition this academic year will be the equivalent to a firework display in its rush of energy and its multiple sparks of brilliant colour. Mark Cazalet is a dynamic artist, whose insight and enthusiasm for art make him a notable figure at the Royal Drawing School and a significant presence within the contemporary arts scene. Yet his artistic development has followed a singular path, out of step with many of the fast-changing fashions within art practice. His chosen media are traditional, but his awareness of the texture and feel of everyday life is intensely modern. Whether travelling abroad or on home territory, he is alert to the surface appearances of things and in his treatment of them seeks out further meanings. Looking at his art, one sometimes feels that everything seems to shimmer with vitality.

This exhibition has been curated by Professor Frances Spalding, and a full colour catalogue is available. Visit the exhibition from 10am-5pm daily (after the Private View on 7 October).
