weiss berlin presents a solo show with works by Ed Clark. The artist, one of the most important artists of the New York School, produced abstract paintings of extraordinary beauty and significance.

Clark developed new approaches to painting such as using everyday objects and physical activities such as sweeping with a broom in the production of paintings to produce large, controlled strokes over a canvas on the floor or fabricating shaped paintings, on his works on paper pigments are disbursed and layered among pastose applications of paint. Mixing and layering rich hues in varying consistencies and forms, Clark’s work incorporates color, light, texture, and movement in gestural forms ranging from explosive to subtle at the same time.

Clark’s works are included in the collections of many major institutions and museums, including The Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
