The Space Between: The Work of Clara Crockett and Alan Crockett

When two people co-exist, living and working side by side, there exists between them a space. This space, much like the interval between objects oriented in close proximity, contains a spark, a charge, where a world of possibility awaits. Some call it spatial tension, where an invisible force attracts objects that are so close, yet not quite touching; objects that not only relate and communicate, but also beckon to each other- they belong together.

For fifty years Clara and Alan Crockett have lived and worked together, each with their own voice, aesthetic, and sensibility. They reared a family, bought and sold homes, traveled, shared successes and disappointments, cooked meals, slept, woke, and laughed. Creatively. Soulfully. With respect and dignity.

Each have a body of work that celebrates the joy of life, the joy creating. We see large, explosive canvases and small, intimate worlds. As disparate as these works may first appear, they, in fact, not only relate and speak to each other, but they also beckon to each other- yes, they belong together.
