What are the kind of things going on here? Essentially it’s a brief biography and photos available for publicity purposes. Maybe an opportunity to post brief details of other things that are happening as well.
For those who might be remotely interested.
Clive Wilkins has worked as a fine art painter and has exhibited widely, including at the National Portrait Gallery, London on several occasions. He has also exhibited at the Royal Academy and in private galleries in Cork Street, London – where he had a one man show in 2007. His work can be found in public and private collections. Clive has produced portraits of Sir Howard Hodgkin and Sir Peter Blake amongst others and has been presented publicly to HRH Princess Royal.
His writing and paintings have been in print on numerous occasions, most notably in his published work ‘The Creatures in the Night”, a story written and lavishly illustrated by Wilkins in 2008.
His current project, ‘Moustachio’, is a novel in four parts, of which parts 1 & 2 are complete. It explores imagination and questions aspects of consciousness and reality amidst the miasma of being.
Clive is involved in an arts/science collaboration with Prof. Nicky Clayton of Cambridge University. They are currently exploring the links between their specific disciplines~ the prime interest is to compare notes and ideas concerning ways of seeing, cognition and the need of human beings to make sense of the world they inhabit. In this sense the goal is to better understand the the subjective experience of thinking. They are formulating a unique series of talks to communicate their research and findings. To this end they were invited to discuss their work at a Royal Institution Discourse on 26th October 2012, in the presence of HRH Duke of Kent.
He is a performer and magician and is particularly interested in the nature of illusion and the psychology of perception and the chosen ways we adopt to make sense of a strange world.
He currently lives in the heart of England. In his spare time he is a teacher, flautist and tango dancer.
