Jim A. Clark

Jim Clark is a draughtsman, painter, and sculptor, as well as art instructor and curator.  He received his undergraduate art degree at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, an MFA at Vesper College, in addition to completing study and coursework at Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne and at the Academie de Port-Royal in Paris.

His work explores the mysteries of emotional reality at the nexus of mark, form, and material: a palimpsest of memory’s foundations marked by fresh observational immediacy.  Current imagery reflects life at the limits and crux of the Far and Middle North, trace of red-hot syrupy stained valentines, and the dreams of delicate brutes.

In addition to his personal expressive drawing, painting, and sculpture, he illustrates the independent comic books Colliders and the forthcoming Freedom Raiders.
