Seth Clark
In Isolation Series VI

2020

$3,500

About

This architectural wall-hanging artwork titled "In Isolation Series VI" is an original artwork by Seth Clark made of collage, charcoal, pastel, graphite, and acrylic on wood. This piece measures 40" x 30". About the exhibition Paradigm Gallery is pleased to present "In Isolation", a solo exhibition of new works by mixed-media artist, Seth Clark, opening* on October 23, 2020, and remaining on view through November 21, 2020. The new series of collage and drawings continues the artist’s ongoing study of structure and aging architecture, but with a looser and more gestural hand. "In Isolation" explores control, constriction, and the idea of home within the framework of the globally shared experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. For his fourth solo exhibition at Paradigm, Clark will be presenting a new series of house portraits he created during quarantine. The new series is more bare and disjointed than the works Clark is usually known for producing, but they do not feel messy or careless. Rather, by leaving in drips and smudges of paint, the works of In Isolation give the viewer a more honest and less manicured look into Clark’s process. During this time of uncertainty, Clark has been allowing his medium to dictate the work, rather than mapping or sketching it out. This surrender of control has allowed the artist to go back to the fundamentals of his practice and provides a more natural physicality to the work. Clark’s practice has always revolved around decaying architecture and he believes we romanticize these ruins because they have the ability to take us into the past and release us from the current, an attribute which feels especially self-indulgent right now. The works of "In Isolation" are evidence of a time when, like an abandoned building, life is paused, floating. In our constriction, we are able to be mindful of the past and present, and in doing so, we are able to reset the course of our future.
