British artist Clive Head captures the complex beauty of everyday movements in his kaleidoscopic oil paintings.
His artistic evolution began in the ’90s, a period in which the artist embraced Realism, representing urban landscapes, until arriving at the beginning of 2000 to experimentations inspired by spatial mathematics.
As Clive explains a statement on the website:

“Rejecting the conventions of perspective, the resulting panoramas seamlessly merged different spaces into plausible but impossible totalities”.

Paintings are often set in the city and depict people on public transport, customers in coffee shops and environments where frequent movements are at the order of the day. Each painting contains fragmented gestures that demonstrate changes over time, while also presenting a psychological perspective. Humanity dances at the frenetic pace of the subway, the traffic and the hands of the clock.
