NOTES
Ed Clark produced bands of interfused color, such as those evident in this work, by pushing pigments across the surface with a single, swift stroke. This maneuver, often executed horizontally on a floor, offers Clark the implied motion he desires in his images—a directional force further accentuated by a shaped support. He explained, “It seemed to me that the oval as a natural shape could best express movement extended beyond the limits of the canvas.”
