Clark @ ADA

In the back area, ADA is showing 3 other artists - one is Jared Clark. He's showing a big grid of chopped up and painted on found-art, mostly stuff he brought from Utah and mostly "country-kitchen" looking stuff. There's a humor and a weird sincerity to the work, as if he's trying to meld contemporary abstraction with my grandmother's decor. Here's another:

Clark is a grad student at VCU and I saw him last week in his studio, making a larger scupture out of these materials.

I'll have the other two artists in the show tomorrow and Thursday...
