Are We There Yet features new works that primarily consist of graphite drawings and lithographic prints, the latter made at Pyramid Atlantic during Clark’s recent Keyholder Residency. At their core, the works are exercises in mark making, expressing pent up energies—thoughts, feelings, and conversations. “Where do I want to go,” “Where should I go,” and “Where am I going” are encapsulated in the phrase “Are We There Yet.”
Clark begins from words, which are sometimes worked to a degree of obscurity by the time the work is complete. “The words originate from songs, sermons, or conversations and are chosen for a particular strength or for a need to further ponder,” says the artist. “While executing a work, the word(s) fall back to a low mental reverb; a gentle processing of their meaning or relevance.”
