R. Clarke-Davis, Six Accordions, 2022

Over the last couple of months I've been the recipient of a cool new batch of accordions from R. Clarke-Davis. What's interesting to me about these accordions is that they're back-to-the-basics accordions. It's refreshing for me to see these with their lush colors and subtle sequencing. R. Clarke-Davis and I have recently been in correspondence regarding the nature of the accordion, and the titles for four of these works were words he had added to the front of the envelopes in which he mailed these individual accordions. So, I see these works as a part of our larger dialogue about accordions, and the titles would seem to confirm this also.

You can find other works by R. Clarke-Davis in this blog if you search!

All are the same dimensions: 3 double-sided pages, individually 3.5" x 5.5" and when unfolded 1ft 4.5".
