About Paul Clark

 
 
  • Biography

    I have been a creator since I was a child. I live to make things. I must create all the time. But the visceral experience of oil paint is what really drives me. Oil is like flesh, beautiful and tactile. There is a vibrance to my rendition of figures and a palpable relationship between the figure and it’s (usually) abstract field. 

    I was heavily influenced in my 20's by Francis Bacon and the Expressionist movement of the early 20th Century. Now that I am older I have abandoned the more existential themes of my youth and paint from a Christian viewpoint celebrating the Divine as witnessed in the figurative. I am captivated not only by the anatomical and it's relationship to oil, but also Man's relationship to his environment and particularly how he moves through it.

    There is a distinctive disintegration of the figure into the ether. It is a transfiguration. It is breaking down of the material into the Spirit. Joy, laughter, play, Spirit and love are recurring themes in my work and my life.
