Covenant, abstract painting in oil in the modern abstract art collection of Francois Barthelemy and Valerie Lardy

Covenant

“We were looking for a painting that would suit a large meeting room. We wanted to project a sense of sharpness, boldness and energy – the very opposite of sleepy consensus. “Covenant” was exactly right and certainly attracts people’s attention.”

Noli Me Tangere' from the series Testament  by abstract artist Rachel Clark and in Francois Barthelemy's contemporary abstract art collection

Noli Me Tangere

“The minimalist white walls of our new colourless offices needed something that would stir animation. At the same time we wanted a painting we could live with. Noli is bold in colour but also has depth and intimacy: people are drawn into it. It has become the focus of the office.”

abstract painting 'Trewassick' by abstract artist Rachel Clark in the modern abstract art collection of Nigel and Bindy Oxbrow

Trewassick

“I first visited Rachel’s studio some ten years ago. I was accompanying an art dealer friend and fell in love with Rachel’s abstract paintings. Twenty minutes later I was the proud owner of “Trewassick”, a beautiful abstract with strong messages and colours. The painting has remained one of our favourite works. As the light changes the mood changes – the composition constantly draws the eye from across the room – it is always a pleasure to reflect on, and explore.”

abstract painting from the series 'The Planet Suite' by abstract artist Rachel Clark and in Chris Haydon's contemporary abstract art collection

Jupiter

“Her paintings celebrate colour and life. They mix delicacy and strength. The mark making can be complex, never overbalancing the beauty Rachel has created. I have lived with ‘Jupiter’ for some years now, it’s a central painting to The Planet Suite, and I still revel in its power and its richness. It is endlessly absorbing. As it happens other buyers have made approaches … but I will never sell it.”

Uranus

“This painting reflects my life both spiritual and material. It has a central role in my life and I wouldn’t be without it. I meditate in front of it every day and if I was going to an island I would take it with me – nothing else at all. It’s so vibrant and full of life. Very positive.”

Mars

“I have always wanted a large abstract painting. Drawings are my first love and I especially like the way this abstract is drawn with paint. Rachel is wonderful at drawing. The colour (colour is very important to me) is just knock out. I always seem to find new colours each time I look at the painting. I always find it peaceful, but yet dynamic and refreshing.”

Saturn

“The painting hangs on my living room wall. I feel its presence there and find that it acts as a beacon to my subconscious, trawling through it and helping me orientate my mind for the day.”

abstract painting in oil from the series The Planet Suite by the abstract artist Rachel Clark  and in Dr Tony Druttman's abstract art collection

Neptune

“I have two very good friends who share my home, they are Neptune and Venus. I do not pretend to know or understand a lot about abstract art, but these paintings appeal on many different levels. I never tire of them. There is always something to look at, whether it is the power of the whole canvas, or a colour relationship, or even a brush stroke. These are friends whose conversation never bores me and whose beauty is unfading. I am delighted that my children have made friends with Neptune and Venus, as in time they will become theirs.”

Venus

“Even after so many mornings of being dazzled by the passionate and raging planet of Venus, it still wakes me up and starts my day off with a blast.”

abstract art work in acrylic by the abstract artist Rachel Clark in Colin Wilk's modern abstract art collection

Aquarius

“I have an abstract painting of Rachel’s that embraces a series of blues and greens. I look at it frequently. Each time it is different, each time I discover something new… and it will be like that forever.”

Colin Wilks Partner Deloitte and Touche, Warsaw

abstract painting in acrylic by the abstract artist Rachel Clark in Loretta Loach and Judith Lowe's modern abstract art collection

Cornwall

“This was one of the first purchases of ‘original art’ we ever made. We never thought of ourselves as people who buy ‘original art’, like most people we were hesitant and unsure. Seeing this picture we were both immediately struck by a sense of calm it evinced in both of us. Through its confident sense of colour, beautifully contained in rectangular shapes with cleverly fluid boundaries, there is containment, openess, and like the sky, a sense of changing possibilities.”

Sacred Groves

“Every time I look at Sacred Groves I feel more calm and serene: it hums with the warmth of the sun at the end of the day.”

“Sacred Groves shows itself to be a truly major work…incredible depth…unbelievably sophisticated and dynamic (her portraits apart) this is the only seriously great painting we are custodians of”
