Clements’ completion of her famous panoramas are not always done on purpose. Drawing only a small perspective of her point of view, she sometimes finds that more needs to be added, continuously glueing extra sections to the drawing until satisfied, resulting in month-long processes. The entire procedure of cutting, folding and sticking brings about a visual depiction of the distressed paper, representing the journey of the artist’s work.
“Playing with processes involving interruption, cuts, skips, and extensions, I work to see how static images might express time passage through gradual and abrupt shifts in perspective, light, palette, mark, and gesture,” explains Clements. The exhibition features nearly thirty of her works, ranging from larger pieces to smaller intricate works done on paper, across multiple floors of Mana Contemporary.
