Artist list

Thea Clark
Clark is a multidisciplinary artist whose work spans 3d and 2d in the form of wearables, sculpture, installation, fiber art, and art on paper. She has been preoccupied with environmentalism her whole life. In the last ten years, she has researched weather events incorporating historic data of isobar and floodplain maps together with domestic and found objects.

Clark is drawn to materials that have resonance or speak of place. For example, clothing as a stand-in for people, domestic cloth because of the associations with home and shelter. Found objects are used since they are transformed by our behaviors. Discarded, their purpose or value is diminished to nothing. When found or discovered, we undo their status as worthless, by perceiving potential. With further engagement found objects are imbued with new meaning. Clark sees this as Do/Undo, a process that is a metaphor and blueprint for our relationship with earth. Looking both back and ahead, she reflects and speculates on discord versus equilibrium between the natural world, man, and the built environment. Art making is her action to personalize the global situation. Believing that people must feel before they will act, Clark hopes to generate galvanizing impulses through her work.
