Description - The Art of Jock Clutterbuck by Sasha Grishin
Jock Clutterbuck is a remarkably accomplished sculptor and printmaker, whose distinctive abstract imagery is equally expressive in either medium. In his 'Foreword', Geoffrey Edwards describes Clutterbuck's unique forms as possessing '...the elegant visual clarity and crisp ornament of an old astrolabe or suchlike scientific instrument'. Author Sasha Grishin explains that the artist is '...unusual in his preoccupation with mysticism in general and with theosophy and ...arcane systems of knowledge'. The identifying characteristics of this artist's works stretch throughout his entire oeuvre-dating from his student days at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in the 1960s, throughout his more than 25 years teaching at the Victorian College of the Arts, to the years since 2000 that he has been able to dedicate full-time to his art. Clutterbuck's first exhibitions were held at Tate Adams' Crossley Gallery, Melbourne's first dedicated printmaking venue, which from the 1950s to 1980s showed artists such as Fred Williams, George Baldessin and Hertha Kluge-Pott. Today, Jock Clutterbuck exhibits at Australian Galleries, with whom this exquisite monograph, designed by Suzi Ditterich, is co-published. AUTHOR: Sasha Grishin AM, FAHA, is the author of more than 30 books on art, including Australian Art: A History, and has served as the art critic for The Canberra Times for forty-five years. He is an Emeritus Professor at the Australian National University, Canberra; Guest Curator at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Australian Government, Department of Communications and the Arts Cultural Gifts Program approved valuer.
