ARTIST IN RESIDENCE - CLAYTON BLAKE - OFFICIAL OPENING NIGHT
Join us to celebrate the launch of Quince Fromagerie's new project... ARTIST IN RESIDENCE.
Our ARTIST IN RESIDENCE project involves hosting a local artist to exhibit their work in our shop front window at Quince, at the beautiful Cornerstone Stores in Tugun. Our first artist to take the stage is Currumbin's very own, Clayton Blake with his works 'Balance' and 'Within'.
With an already strong connection within our community, Quince aims to extend this to the creative arts too. A small commission will be taken from each artwork sold to be donated directly to charities and organisations that support homelessness on the Gold Coast.

ABOUT THE ARTIST - CLAYTON BLAKE
Australian born Clayton Blake is a multidisciplinary installation artist widely recognized for his extraordinary works that employ various elements of architecture and sculpture. His practice involves adapting everyday objects and materials to specific artistic and architectural applications. Clayton uses a diverse range of materials to create large scale, contemporary installations that challenge and excite. He constructs expansive works that respond to or reflect their environments, whilst challenging and distorting the viewer’s preconceptions of structures and space.
Clayton attempts to expand the definition of art to include new forms of social engagement. He uses his art to promote discussion, encourage debate, and raise awareness about injustice, inequality and social change.
Clayton is a student of contemporary sculpture and a creator of interesting & thought provoking objects.
