Jules Clarke was born in New York and lives and works in London. She has a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, and completed the Turps Correspondence course in 2014. Recent exhibitions include group shows at no format, Studio 1.1, and The Foundry in London, @PaintBritain in Ipswich, and Correspond at The Artworks, Halifax. In 2013 she exhibited in the Marmite Prize for painting which toured the UK, and has been shortlisted for stage two of the John Moores Prize in 2016, 2014 and 2012. Jules runs artist exhibitions and events from her studio in Peacock Yard, London.
With sources ranging from home-videos of accidents and blunders, to dance contests, music videos, Hollywood films and family footage, her focus is on materialising in paint the fragility of withdrawing a still image from a moving one. Figures begin to erase themselves or become part of their surroundings, and as borders between people and things become ambiguous, new forms can emerge like animals or ghosts.
