NOTES
Throughout Ed Clark’s work, the interplay of color is paramount. In Untitled (Bahia Series), layered and adjacent atmospheric fields of magenta, orange, yellow, and aquamarine create complex visual relationships. Clark often credits his environment as being the catalyst for new, unexpected chromatic explorations. Since 1971, he has completed multiple working trips abroad to Greece, Nigeria, Mexico, Martinique, Brazil, and China, among other locations, to inform his art. While in the Bahia region of Brazil, the area’s coastal light inspired a series of works including this one.
