Jock Clutterbuck is a printmaker and sculptor, active since the early 1960s, who has forged a distinctive journey through artmaking that singles him out as an enigma within his field. Guided by the urge to create and to understand, his art represents both a oneness with eternity and a quest for material coherence.
Wisdom Journey examines the years between 1967 and 1972 within Clutterbuck’s extensive oeuvre. A formative period for the artist, commencing with a year of work in Gippsland and culminating in his rise to national prominence, the exhibition reveals through printmaking and sculpture how Clutterbuck navigated his pathway from emergence to maturity. This timely, fifty-year review will be a revelation for visitors new to Clutterbuck’s practice, and a reaffirmation of his continuing relevance and achievement.
The exhibition opens on Saturday 22 May and is current until Sunday 1 August 2021. For more information, click here.
