I am a representational painter. I paint what I see, only what I see, only while I am looking at it, al fresco and alla prima in oil on paper. Every place is unique, every day and time is unique, my goal is to create an unique visual record of the character of that place and time.
Biography: My name is Marc Clamage. I work in oils and graphic media, primarily landscapes, portraits and nudes. I was very fortunate at as a child to live within spitting distance of New York and a mother who was an artist and art teacher herself. I visited every gallery and museum and studied at the Art Students' League with the same instructor, Ethel Katz, who had taught Mom 20 years earlier. I attended Tyler School of Art (a disaster) and studied at the League again and at the National Academy (with David Leffel and Harvey Dinnerstein respectively) before receiving my MFA at Boston University. I make my living doing architectural and computer graphics (see the main page at Emasary.com) and I sheepishly admit to having made virtually no effort to get into galleries or shows in the past ten years -- although I do have an exhibit coming up in 2004. I HAVE made every effort to paint every chance I get, despite the responsibilities of job and family. I used to go religiously on an annual painting trip, camp out in the woods and paint. Some of the paintings here are from those trips. Some are cityscapes; I happen to live about halfway between two particularly handsome cities, Boston and Providence. The sea is not far away. There are also portraits of my friends and family. And lots and lots of self portraits! Also nudes. The nude is grail of Western art. Enjoy the show!
