Paintings, photography and video by Clive Whalley at Oriel Q


Engineer-turned-artist Clive Whalley explores what he describes as “the uneasy relationship” between painting and photography in a new exhibition at Narberth’s Oriel Q gallery.

In his intriguing show, Clive isn’t so much about making movies as he is about what he can learn from paintings that could move.

Since the invention of photography, there has been this conflict between the two, and Clive explores the nature and evolution of the predicament of painting.

He even embraces cooperation with artists working in photography like John Beeching trying to understand these changes.


The artist said of the exhibition, “There’s lots of stuff to play with and art to watch and sit on, like television, and it might give rise to thoughts you didn’t know not that you had”.

This is the gallery’s first exhibition to explore the effect of photography on painting and painting on photography, offering possible future developments for both.

Clive Walley – Paintings, photographs and video installations can be seen at Oriel Q Gallery 11, Market Street Narberth SA67 7AX from 16 September to 15 October. The gallery will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
