..."Ms. Clarke...an expert in finding beauty where decay presumably resides....Her work coaxes quiet elegance from images of rugged, weathered and disused rooms, civilization gone rusty, in the most delightful way..." Joseph Woodard, Santa Barbara New Press

..."Patricia Clarke is returning to the photographic scene in Santa Barbara...Again using her Holga camera to create strong and visually complex single, double and triple images, her photographs tell heartfelt stories..." THE Magazine, Los Angeles
