The open view

"The power of nature, the feelings and the emotional that nature can produce, that's what interests me," is the Ian Clements' answer when asked about his motivation for creating.
The open view

"The power of nature, the feelings and the emotional that nature can produce, that's what interests me," is the Ian Clements' answer when asked about his motivation for creating. He finds this motivation, among other things, in the sunny and summery or cold snowy Engelberg landscape. Ian Clement's landscapes often radiate a great calm. The viewer's gaze wanders over meadows and mountains to the open sky. Some crows pass by in the glaring backlight of the low-lying winter sun. Many of his paintings leave space for the viewer to let his mind wander. Ian Clement's paintings are intelligent compositions of light and shadow, perspective and escape. He perceives scenes, moods, seasons, wind and weather with an open mind.

Giving space to talent

Ian Clements is a self-taught artist who was late in giving his talent more space in his life. The daily hamster wheel of work and obligations did not allow him to make more of his artistic talent for a long time.

With his charming little gallery in Engelberger Dorfstrasse, he has now created an environment in which he can present his works to the public and work consistently on his ideas, projects and commissions. In the Tal Museum, the artist will show his current work for the first time in a solo exhibition.
Scenes of everyday life
The boy's hands disappear into his somewhat too large, bulky winter jacket. School is out - he dawdles home across the wintry, snow-covered Klostermatte. Behind him stretches the pale blue sky. The portrait-format watercolor "Dawdling" speaks the typical language of the artist. He loves to show the viewer fleeting everyday situations. He takes us into scenes of daily life happening outside, which, as soon as they happen, would already be over and forgotten, if the artist did not capture them with his brush. By capturing this so inconspicuous moment, he gives it a meaning and a value. This casualness of the event is also reflected in the painterly realization of the paintings. Ian Clements makes skillful use of watercolor. The children in the painting "Playing with foam" are painted delicately and translucently. Will they also soon vanish into thin air like the foam they are playing with? And the cross-country skiers? Elegantly they move, skillfully balancing on their skating skis. This is a motif that Ian Clements often put down on paper last winter. When he is out on the cross-country skis himself, he memorizes images that he later captures in his watercolors. He is fascinated by the movement of the athletes, the dynamics of the action, but also the backdrop in which this spectacle takes place. The winter sportsmen bring movement into the frozen natural scenery.

Ian Clements shows his work until August 14, 2022 at the Tal Museum Engelberg.
