Krista Clark

Artist Statement Submitted 2019

I use the visual language of architecture and the literal physicality of building materials to create site-specific installations. I am interested in transitional spaces, the homogenization of place in addition to pushing and playing with the boundaries of drawing, sculpture and installation. I use formal gestures of overlapping, layering, stacking and cutting and saddle them with the task of depicting our compromised narratives within our built environments.

Each work is steered by my observations of shifting urban landscapes then broken down and retold through abstraction. I seek to highlight the ubiquitous materials we are exposed to everyday as we transition through our changing communities. While celebrating the formal characteristics of these materials and structures, the works question the presumption of a universal standard of aesthetic and spatial measurement.
