Lincoln Clarkes | Giving Notice

August 7 – 30, 2014

Opening Reception: Thursday August 7
6-9 pm


Initial Gallery is pleased to present Giving Notice, a collection of recent photographs by Lincoln Clarkes.

The prolific photographer presents candid images from his unique point of view, surveying moments of everyday, capturing the in-between. Giving Notice is the activity of his curious eye. The artist voyeuristically indulges his fascination with the unobserved, ultimately treating his subjects with romantic reverence. Clarkes transforms a glance into a scene to be noticed, to be savoured.

Lincoln Clarkes’ body of work spans four decades. After first emerging in 1980 as an infamous Vancouver street artist and designer/painter, Clarkes abandoned the paint in favour of fashion and portrait assignments. His work has been published extensively nationally and internationally including the artists books Cyclists (2013), Views (2006) and Heroines (2002). Clarkes currently resides between British Columbia, Ontario & England.
