M. Clark New York City, New York

M. Clark sculpts metallic foil with heat and pressure to create rich surfaces that are highly reactive to shifts in light. She strives to continually push the bounds of her gold foil medium, including working directly with a manufacturer to develop foil in specific sizes and colors that were not previously available. As a person with dyslexia, her artwork has roots in the way she processes symbols. "The multidimensional shape and arc of letters are more powerful than stringed characters forming words," she explains. M. lives in New York and works in a studio on the 35th floor with big windows overlooking the East River. She describes it as an inspiring and calming space, and is fastidious about keeping the place organized. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including a large scale installation in the Smithsonian, and is collected internationally.

    Artist Statement

    I create dynamic conversations between constancy and chaos by manipulating heat and pressure to adhere metallic foil to varied surfaces. My pieces reflect light in diffuse patterns producing a shifting luminosity that is unique to my work. My creative process includes constant experimentation with materials. Each piece is created over many weeks using a specialized technique that I developed. I explore the physical boundaries of my chosen medium with innovations in modern processes.

    The goal is always to find balance amid the upheaval. But it’s the juxtaposition of the two in a composition that keeps things interesting. My artwork has roots in the way I process symbols. As a dyslexic, the multi-dimensional shape and arc of letters are more powerful than stringed characters forming words. I see a linear structure broken by entropy and movement. The relationships between form, depth, and space emerge in the non-representational nature of my work.
