Cosmic Connections: The Metaphysical Practice of Kirk Clark
The Metaphysical Practice of Kirk Clark explores the artist trajectory over a period of 60 years. Kirk Clark has pursued an artistic practice founded in the metaphysical principles of Wassily Kandinsky and has primarily worked in a style that is informed by Abstract Expressionism. Yet rather than simply being derivative, Clark has expanded upon mid-Century Formalism in a manner that is both innovative and authentic. Clark’s artworks are created spontaneously with a stream of consciousness that reflects his understanding of cosmic harmonies and rhythms of the universe. The notion of transcendence is central to his process and to a fuller appreciation of his artworks which carry cosmological narratives that extend beyond their formal design.They are records of transcendent phenomena that are visual analogues which reveal universal relationships between chaotic forces and corporeal experience.
