John Clark is a 55-year-old British artist who loves painting and building people. Clark combines pattern making, plotting, and injection molding to create his unique paper sculptures, each finished with a variety of paints, pigments, and waxes.
His sculpting journey began three years ago, back in 2016 when he first created a cardboard model of a man which he had painted many times.
“Whatever the source, the work proceeds with some urgency as if it were a hunt,” the artist shared on his personal website. “Meanings percolate gently through the mixing; attaching and detaching themselves as the arrangements shift. I exert little control but take notice and what I notice I paint or build. I suspect that at the heart of the process is a question of identity, allied to a suspicion that the real world is as much a product of desire as it is an object.”
