August Artist of the Month

Marc Clamage

“Panhandlers of Harvard Square”

August 2nd – 31st, 2017

 

 

Artist Statement
Artists generally fall into two categories: those who look within themselves for inspiration, and those who look outside. I fall in the second category. These paintings are from a series of portraits of the homeless I painted between 2010 and 2014. I call the series of almost 60 pieces “Panhandlers of Harvard Square.” I paid the subjects to pose for me—actually, to let me paint them as they went about their business of panhandling—and over the course of time collected some of their stories as well as their images. All paintings are from life, plein air and alla prima.
