Matt Clark



Conduit Gallery is honored to announce a solo exhibition of paintings by Dallas-based Artist Matt Clark.

Matt Clark is an abstract artist whose work is inspired by place: psychological, physical, and spiritual. The passage of time informs this latest series of paintings. With layered color fields and meditative mark making, he has interpreted the diurnal movements of the world that bring awe, beauty, and the sublime into our lives - the sunrises, sunsets, rainy days, full moons, or starry nights that we all experience. Using his recognizable technique of pulling and scraping paint across the canvas, Clark has produced abstracted landscapes of the ephemeral moments that make us feel part of a bigger whole. States the artist, “The genesis of my work lies in how place and experience, both physical and psychological, informs us of ourselves and our surroundings. My paintings serve as material record of reaction, emotion, perspective and determination.” This creative journey has led him to conceptualize his personal history and experiences into a body of work that offers a dynamic visual experience open to a multitude of interpretations and analyses.

Matt Clark is a Dallas-based artist and Associate Professor of Practice at University of Texas, Arlington. He received his BA in Art History in 1995 from Arizona State University and an MFA in 2002 from Cranbrook University. His work is included in over 25 international corporate collections. He also serves as faculty director at The Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Innovation at the university.
