Robert Clarke will open his latest exhibition, THE A-Z OF DOGS at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery on April 1 in London.
On view will be 26 portrait paintings of British dog breeds, each will represent a letter of the alphabet. For the series a cross section of friends dogs and commissioned dogs and some taken from inspirational images, will set out to explore the dogs' individuality.
When Robert was two he was attacked by a large German Shepherd confronted his fear when he was persuaded by his girlfriend to get a Jack Russell puppy in 2003. His time with the puppy club gently broke his fear of dogs to the point that when a friend asked him to paint their dog he was ready for the challenge.
The NYC edition of THE A-Z OF DOGS will be out later in the year with more of a "toy" American feel …Boston Terriers,Chihuahua"s and Bull Terriers etc.
