Morandi is named after the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi who obsessively painted still lifes throughout his life, of variations of simple forms obtained from everyday existence. He altered these objects by removing labels and painting their surface to reduce their functionality and call attention to their shape. This compulsive exploration of form and juxtaposition of forms was partly the inspiration for Clark’s solo exhibition, “Still Lives” held at the Rosenfeld Gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2013. This particular piece demonstrates an abstraction of form in Clark’s work.
