As a multidisciplinary artist, Clark melds the practical functionality of graphic design—especially shape and form—with Fine Art. The resulting permeability between disciplines pushes Clark to explore the physical boundaries of her chosen mediums with innovations in modern processes, and constant experimentation with materials. Clark grew up among the mountains in a small Idaho town and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a specialization in Graphic Design. Her award-winning works are owned by collectors around the world and have been featured in international publications and media. A large installation has also been exhibited in The Smithsonian.
M. Clark creates dynamic conversations between constancy and chaos by manipulating heat and pressure to adhere metallic foil to varied surfaces. Her pieces reflect light in diffuse patterns producing a shifting luminosity that is unique to her work.
Clark’s creative process includes constant experimentation with materials. Each piece is created over many weeks using a specialized technique that Clark developed. She explores the physical boundaries of her chosen medium with innovations in modern process. She finds the resulting “Art” a commentary on life: “The goal is always to find balance amid the upheaval. But it’s the juxtaposition of the two in a composition that keeps things interesting.”
Clark's artwork has roots in the way she processes symbols. As a dyslexic, the multidimensional shape and arc of letters are more powerful than stringed characters forming words. She sees a linear structure broken by entropy and movement. The relationships between form, depth, and space emerge in the non-representational nature of her work.
