Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico. October 2019.

“Making art isn’t an aesthetic operation; it’s a form of magic designed as a mediator between this strange, hostile world and us; a way of seizing the power by giving form to our terrors as well as our desires.”

Pablo Picasso.

Lola and Smudge

Lola and Smudge. 17×14 in. 43×46 cm. Acrylic on paper by Clinock.

I painted at an artist residency in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico in October 2019.

My Mexico paintings are always very influenced by my sensual experiences in this other culture that I have grown to love over many years of creative visits.

Lola and Smudge is the first of the Chapala paintings that I will post here until they are done.
