Clive Parsley

Originally from Devon, Clive has spent most of his time living and working in London. After studying graphics at the University of Arts London, he worked as an Art Director & Designer. Now Sussex-based and having completed an MA Fine Art at the University of Brighton, his practice uses 3-dimensional forms and site-specific installations to create pieces which explore past consciousness. 'Currently my interest is drawn by a world we can’t see – the invisible space that we move through and the rooms, buildings and landscapes in which we live. Each street, each building, new or old, has its own story. Spaces where an endless procession of people’s lives have been and will continue to be played out. I'm intrigued by the journeys of those who’ve passed through this space and the traces they might leave behind. My aim is to suggest narratives and enigma which might encourage a viewer to reflect on past human consciousness and presence. I'm particularly influenced by the work of Doris Salcedo and Chiharu Shiota – artists who repurpose objects and perpetuate identity through creating what could be described as memorial.'
