Brian Clarke: Night OrchidsBrian Clarke: Night Orchids

Published by Heni Publishing.
Interview by Robert Storr.

Most nights between about 7pm and midnight Brian Clarke draws and paints on paper at his home in West London. The subjects of these works change over time but are made obsessively over periods that usually last about two to three years. Between December 2013 and August 2015 the subject was Night Orchids. The series began on a visit to Thailand and continued in France, but the majority were made at home. They are coloured paintings of startling variety. The urge that drives these nights is curiosity. As in his explorations with Fleur de Lys, Spitfires, The Cross, Industrial Architecture etc., this varied iconography—in this instance, Night Orchids—generates an apparently endless sequence of questions “about the nature of beauty and the void in which it flourishes”. This catalogue of 267 works—introduced by an exclusive interview between Clarke and renowned American critic Robert Storr.



Brian Clarke is a London-based artist whose work can be found in architectural settings and public and private collections worldwide.

Brian Clarke: WorkBrian Clarke: Work

Published by Steidl.

Encompassing seven volumes, this limited edition slipcased set presents the sketchbooks of renowned London-based Brian Clarke, a self-described "artist married to architecture in every way." (He has collaborated on stained glass, mosaic and tapestry projects with such high-profile architects as Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, ArataIsozaki and Future Systems, among many others.) Within six of these volumes, Clarke explores a specific theme--the fleur-de-lis, landscapes and seascapes, figurative studies, heraldry, splashes and skulls--as it has evolved into finished projects. The seventh volume is an index for the others, and explores the large-scale artworks that result from Clarke's thematic meanderings. Including oil paintings, stained glass and works in lead and mosaic, the index is, in Clarke's words, the "parts of the sum," while the sketchbooks include works in various media, from drawing to collage, watercolor and photography.
