'The new exhibition at Tate St. Ives has engendered a quick and intriguing response from St. Ives artist John Charles Clark, who, for the past 10 years or so, has regularly incorporated writing (generally in the form of loose, seemingly-abstract word constructions) into his creative output. As an artist, he has been increasingly keen to place his works outside of the confines of the museum/gallery, and this recent work – a response to the new Tate exhibition ‘If Everybody Had An Ocean’ – has found a home in a small window of the Porthmeor Café opposite the Tate Gallery itself'.
