“…We are all, in essence, phenomena in a constant state of intra-action, changing as we constantly change the world. Clossick, I feel, understood this intuitively when he wrote to me recently “Go to the beginning where the thing is everything but art./Do it each time from the inside out, reliving the full process of growth.” I could go on to write at length about the complex ways and means of Clossick’s superlative technique but, at heart, it is a tool for the open-ended ‘knowing’ of the world, a ‘performance’ of it that is not only true to his art but, it would seem, true to the underlying nature of the world and, for this reason, if no other, intensely moving.”

Nicholas Usherwood (excerpt from catalogue introduction)
