Zachary Clark

Zachary likes to paint on things. These things include, but are not limited to, furniture, trash, flannel pajama bottoms, dead plants and, occasionally, canvas. It wasn’t until halfway through painting an imaginary five-foot pile of food in his Intro to Painting class that he realized this was an interest that demanded his pursuit. In other words, he was seduced into painting while mixing the perfect purple for a lump of canned cranberry sauce. Since graduating from Brown University in 2007, Zachary has continued his exploration of a painting and sculpture hybrid practice, manipulating old family textiles into art creatures through stitching and brushwork. Otherwise, he enjoys running (poorly but diligently), drinking Newman’s Own Lemonade and throwing parties of all sorts. You’re invited.
