"There is pleasure in the pathless woods...
rapture on the lonely shore."
--Lord Byron
 
 
Rigmor Clarke was born in Sweden in 1935.  She now lives and works out of her home and studio in Shell Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada.  However, her home in Shell Lake might better be described as a base camp from which she travels into the northern Saskatchewan wilderness to create her impressionistic paintings of the Canadian landscape.  Clarke has invented a unique system for transporting her wet canvases via canoe, and stays out on the land (and the water) for seven to ten days, traveling and painting mostly alone.  The following paintings are only a small representation of her amazing talent.

Raven Exhibition
 
The following exhibition, simply entitled "Raven", first showed at the Little Gallery in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan on May 17, 1998 to rave reviews.   It has since been touring under the sponsorship of The Mendel Art Gallery throughout Saskatchewan and will continue to tour well into the year 2000.   Consisting of several large paintings, woodcut prints, sound box, and a celtic shaman's drum, this exhibition explores the mythology and role the raven has played across cultures and time in the Northern Hemisphere.  As Rigmor Widell Clarke avers, this exhibition is not a "literal record of these mythologies, but rather a loose interpretation of them."  Spanning over eight years of creative effort, the pieces in the Raven exhibition are a testament to the lasting impression this magnificent bird has made not only on the artist, but on the many patrons and visitors who have been fortunate enough to view Clarke's work.
