Karen Clark


A writer before perusing art as a career, Clark talks about her transition from words to images “words fell away and my brain shifted from language to the visual. Images became my obsession. Printing images, cutting them apart, and then putting them back together again with scissors and paste… here I could find beauty in pain and bring the dead back to life.”

Her detail rich pieces called for a site that was elegant and serve as a simple backdrop to the intricacies of her work.
