Graham Clarke is a British artist whose work is collected by admirers around the world. Found in both Royal and public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate Gallery, the Library of Congress in Washington, DC and the British Museum, Graham has recently released “Ramblers’ Road Apples” in part to help The Compost Council of Canada “spread the compost” message.
The image was created in memory of Clarke’s grandparents who, according to the artist, “would have thoroughly approved of today’s enthusiasm to recycle. Grandpa had his allotment to grow vegetables and, of course, a compost heap to illustrate his ‘waste not, want not’ approach to life.
“Why the name ‘Ramblers’ Road Apples?’ Look carefully and find the small boy with bucket and coal shovel; it’s me, on duty to recycle the commodity so conveniently provided by the carrier’s horse. One of my North American collectors taught me this charming expression and it has slipped into our family vocabulary for us to recycle,” said Clarke. For those interested in obtaining one of the only 250 prints available of this image, please contact The Compost Council of Canada at 1-877-571-GROW(4769) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
