Casey House is thrilled to offer Our Arrangement (2 Anchors, Variants) by Mark Clintberg, as this year’s Gallery of Patrons Limited Edition.

Artists’ Statement

Our Arrangement (2 Anchors, Variants) depicts two figures that resemble anchors. Each of the twenty-five pieces in the edition features a unique combination of coloured neon tubing. Their proximity as well as their quantity is used to represent a series of arrangements or agreements between two or more parties. This piece is part of a larger series of works in which each combination of figures represents a different short- or long-term relational arrangement. This series features many quantities of figures interlocking in different patterns, signifying agreements made between one, two, three, four or more individuals. In this case, the piece will signify both the arrangement between the artist and the purchaser, who agrees to be the steward of this artwork, and the artist and Casey House. The details of these arrangements are negotiable.
