Studio Sessions: Devon Clapp


Welcome to the newest episode of Studio Sessions with guest Devon Clapp.

Devon earned a BFA in Printmaking from the Montserrat College of Art in 2006, and an MFA in Painting from the Pratt Institute in New York in 2011. Using quick, expressive marks and bright, outlandish colors, Devon paints scenes that raise a range of conflicting emotional responses, ranging from intrigue, to humor, to uneasy sensations of fear. In his earlier pieces these scenes were often set in the woods and contained many occult references. In recent works the source and setting of the imagery is more mixed, while achieving the same effect.

Listen as Devon discusses the sources of his imagery, and how his use of it is evolving.
