The Slow Regard of Hidden Things

January 5-30, 2021

Clark's new body of work, "The Slow Regard of Hidden Things," created specifically for the space at Blackfish Gallery, feels its way through the question of what it means to be a white, middle-class woman who is an artist, wife, and mother. Responding with quiet, tender images created from tissue paper, wallpaper paste, glassine, and plaster resting on six small Greek pillars, her answers pose riddles rooted in the passage of time and the feminine. There is mystery in these objects echoing through antiquity and into the present, giving weight to the fragility of form and substance. What is hidden, what is unseen, becomes an invitation for the viewer's imagination and interpretation.
