STATEMENT \ THE VOYAGE
“Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. ”
― Oscar Wilde
The Voyage reflects Clark’s interest in how we choose, individually and collectively, to occupy environments physically and emotionally. The Voyage examines how we define and structure our individual experiences within the confines of an organized, communal environment.
This body of work presents ‘portraits’ comprised of images which take a different approach to portraiture and photography: creating a sense of identity without a single face. The portraits seek to capture mood and emotion rather than the likeness of a single person. The images are a narrative for a collective voyage whereby the participants construct the human landscape.
