Family Gallery and the Hysterical Women installation in the South Gallery. Clover's installations use video and projection mapping, completely altering the space, creating a sensory experience for visitors.

In my silk painting, I endeavor to create new worlds on a microcosmic level. I explore pandemics, viruses, bacteria, water, plant life, animals cells, etc. These pieces are petri dishes imagined with the intention of healing our planet’s imbalances. I spend time with a camera, a microscope, projectors, biologists and pour over thousands of technical science photos. I seek to draw attention to the urgent need to respect and protect nature.
My biomorphic abstract collection is done completely on silk. I use various techniques: Japanese rozome, elements of batik, French Serti, and painterly styles incorporating dyes, resist, gutta, enzymes, acrylics, and other experimental mediums.
