Ty Clark has been creating in multiple genres since he was 4 years old. His work is a representation of his memories, thoughts, prayers and dreams that he has compiled on his journeys, through his friends’ stories and his own writings. Each body of work revolves through a specific expression of our personal journeys and the tension that exists in those memories. By using a variety of layers, medium, marks, texture and deconstruction Ty is able to share a story in the same way one’s life is lived, through memories and experiences, from youth to adulthood, at times using text to provide clues to content and interpretation. Ty’s hope is that the work drives the viewer to an internal conversation of memory and meaning giving them clarity amongst the tension in contemporary life.
