  • Catalogue Essay

    Ed Clark has lived and worked in New York City for much of his career. Clark joined the Air Force and served in the South Pacific during World War II, after which he attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and later the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, France with the aid of the GI Bill. Known for his powerful brush stroke, large-scale canvases, and his use of color, his work has drawn accolades internationally for five decades. Clark is also the first painter credited with working on a shaped canvas, an innovation that influenced contemporary art through the 1950s and 1960s.
