Sheltered Meditations

By January 22, 2021
Part drawing and part assemblage, six new works on paper by artist Krista Clark reflect her practice of abstracting common building materials into sculptural forms. In these works, the artist uses cut paper to create architectural depth, layer geometric shapes and negative space to explore composition, pattern, and form. Scalloped edges—a recurring visual motif in Clark’s work—convey motion and repetition. With some almost appearing as cropped aerial views of basketball courts or playing fields, the compositions contain a tension between playfulness and order.
