Brian Clarke. Life and Death
Brian Clarke, who in 1996 created the stained glass windows for the Cistercian Abbaye de la Fille Dieu in Romont, is one of the best-known glass artists of our times. Working with some of the leading architects of our day, he has been involved in major projects such as the Pfizer headquarters in New York, and more recently, has realised the stained glass for the Gothic cathedral of Linköping, Sweden.
At the same time as his architectural works, Clarke creates independent stained glass around a particular theme. The exhibition Don’t Forget the Lamb showed important works by Brian Clarke over the last ten years, on the theme of ‘Life and Death’. The catalogue enlarges on these works, with a preface by the artist himself, and an analytic essay (also translated into English) by Stefan Trümpler, chief curator of the Vitromusée, placing Clarke’s oeuvre in the historic context of stained glass.
