David Clark’s New Work Debuts at Preacher Gallery
Kartwheel founder and creative director David Clark presents Peaced Together — a collection of explorative work opening Thursday, March 22nd at Preacher Gallery. After debuting at SXSW, David’s exciting new series will be open to the public through early April.
Created at the edge of the artist’s comfort zone and inspired by unity and the pulse of the human species, this piece revisits David’s love of artwork and two-dimensional design. The piece consists of layers of linen in off-white shades, all hand dyed using tea and coffee and combined with rope and other uniquely natural materials to show a focus on softness — both literally and figuratively.
The sharp focus on textiles references the softness of the spirit and our undeniable interconnectedness as human beings. Ultimately we are all one, and David’s incredible vision in this new work helps to enforce that fact in this time of social and political turmoil.
The piece is about dreams and goals, no matter how lofty they may seem. “I think it’s healthy to operate just outside of the comfort zone,” he says, and admits this piece was created as a personal exercise in and expression of creative growth. He finds himself going after things that feel uncomfortable — and doing more of those things.
Already an accomplished artist and Kartwheel’s founder, David is preparing for what’s next. He’s ready to push himself further and go after those larger dreams, and he invites us all to join in his process and feel our connection as members of the human species.
Experience Peaced Together yourself. Join us at Preacher Gallery Thursday, March 22nd from 6-9pm for the opening reception.
