Clive Jebbett's latest collection conveys a wonderful sense of atmosphere. Although largely figurative, his work has an ambiguity which is both intriguing and mesmerising, inviting the viewer to complete the story. Clive has worked in fine art since 1967 and alongside his painting career he has co-founded the Essex Arts Circus and has been Exhibition Organiser at York Arts centre. In 1978 he gave up painting entirely in favour of photography and it wasn't for another twenty years that he would decide that his creativity was limited by the camera and return to painting and drawing. The compositions of these later works hint at the influence of his time spent as a photographer.
