Press Release: Century Guild

1 October 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

It is with immense pleasure that Century Guild announces exclusive representation for the art of Clive Barker.

Clive Barker is an artist who defies description; pure imagination, barely captured in any medium. The universes that he downloads from some otherworldly source explode onto his canvases, and eventually make their way into his literature.

The canvases where his ideas take their first breaths are powerful works reminiscent of early Expressionist Art but with a modern perspective that is somewhere between Basquiat and an evil Dr. Seuss, capturing the primal elements of sexuality and the raw potent magic of childhood imagination.

This October 19th, we present a very special group show celebrating the legendary Parisian Theater of Terror, the Grand-Guignol, including historical artworks and new works by Clive Barker.

"I am delighted to be working with the fine folks of Century Guild. They understand my art, my audience, and me. What better proof of that than their celebration of art and halloween terrors that they have invited me to be a part of this October? This is the beginning of something wonderful."
-Clive Barker
