2-TIMES  Art
Ed Clark,
Expanding the Image
@ Hauser & Wirth

I began to believe 
that the real truth
is in the stroke.
For me, it is large,
bold strokes that
do not refer distinctly
to seen nature. The 
paint is the subject.
The motions of the
strokes give the
work life.

1926 – New Orleans,

‘Expanding the 
Is the gallery’s first
exhibition in Los
Angeles devoted to
the American artist, 
featuring works
from his highly
formative years of
1960 through 1980;
two decades during
which Clark made
pivotal breakthroughs
that expanded the
language of abstraction. 

This intimate 
presentation finds 
Clark solidifying a 
signature style that 
evolved from two 
techniques that he 
pioneered in the late 
1950s: the use of 
a push broom to 
handle paint, and 
the invention of the 
shaped canvas.’ 

2-TIMES' highlights:

· Integrated Oval #1 (1972)
