Peter Clarke talks about the Ghetto Fence series

This is the fourth in a series of films of Peter Clarke talking about his work at the Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats exhibition. Here he talks about the works he collectively calls the ‘Ghetto Fence Series’.

Homage to the poet Langston Hughes

In this film Peter Clarke talks about his work, Homage to the poet Langston Hughes. It is dedicated to the American poet and social activist who was recognised for his contribution to the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ and was an important influence on the artist.

A four-colour lithograph print of Homage to the poet Langston Hughes after the original hand-coloured linocut in the artist’s personal collection has been produced to celebrate Peter Clarke’s Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats exhibition. It depicts an outstretched single hand, reaching towards a dove, suggesting a yearning for peace or solidarity.
