Foreword by Joe Hage. Interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

An astonishing collection of 327 collages created by British artist Brian Clarke (born 1953), this monograph is a natural companion to his work in stained glass. Beginning with line drawings in white pencil on black paper, Clarke gradually builds an ephemera of hand-painted paper cutouts, similar to those by Matisse, to produce compositions in stunning color.

Brian Clarke: A Great LightBrian Clarke: A Great Light

Published by HENI Publishing.
Interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Across his five-decade career, British artist Brian Clarke (born 1953) has consistently pushed the boundaries of stained glass as a medium, incorporating new technologies to unlock its visual potential. A Great Light crystallizes Clarke’s vision for stained glass as fundamentally architectural; his works are the result of a dedicated respect for the buildings they inhabit and the surrounding contexts of his practice. The book offers a view of the profound interaction between space and artwork, with over 130 beautifully reproduced images of 68 different stained glass artworks filling its pages and extending into the gatefolds. A Great Light is a striking catalog that serves as a testament to Clarke’s widely regarded status as the most important artist working in stained glass today.

Brian Clarke: VespersBrian Clarke: Vespers

Published by HENI Publishing.
Preface by Brian Clarke. Introduction by Robert Storr.

As Covid persisted into the spring and summer of 2020, British painter and architectural artist Brian Clarke (born 1953) began to spend long evenings in his garden at home in London. Though the global mood was one of solemnity, Clarke found that the poppies in his garden remained as bright as ever.
Taking its title from hespera, the Greek word for evening, Vespers is a collection of over 500 watercolors of poppies painted by Clarke during those long evenings spent in solitude among the flowers. Some pages feature a single poppy on a warm gray background speckled with red; others are lush clusters of flowers nestled among blues and greens. Clarke’s delicate depictions of the flowers, their crimson petals and verdant stems, are evidence of the artist’s “deft command of gestural brushwork,” in the words of American curator Robert Storr, whose writing supplements the artwork.

Brian Clarke: The Art of LightBrian Clarke: The Art of Light

Published by HENI Publishing.
Introduction by Norman Foster. Text by Paul Greenhalgh.

Over the past five decades, British artist Brian Clarke (born 1953) has consistently pushed the boundaries of stained glass as a medium, both in terms of technology and visual vocabulary. With major installation projects all over the world to his name, Clarke has contributed significant artistic and technical breakthroughs to this thousand-year-old medium. His facility with the medium displays his appreciation of the long history of stained glass, from Gothic decoration to the turn-of-the-century innovations of Tiffany glass.

The Art of Light is a testament to Clarke’s belief that "stained glass has an authority and potential to deal with every human condition." This book contains 250 illustrations that present the depth and range of Clarke’s work, with an introduction by architect and sometime collaborator Norman Foster, and an essay by the director of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Paul Greenhalgh.

Brian Clarke: Night OrchidsBrian Clarke: Night Orchids

Published by Heni Publishing.
Interview by Robert Storr.

Most nights between about 7pm and midnight, British artist Brian Clarke (born 1953) draws and paints on paper at his home in West London. The urge that drives these nights is curiosity. 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 colored paintings of startling variety. As in his explorations with Fleur de Lys, Spitfires, The Cross and Industrial Architecture, 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 catalog of 267 works is 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.
