Biography

Jillian Clark uses industrial materials and processes to explore formal issues and the intersection between craft ideologies and fine art practices. Clark creates monumental chalk line drawings, sometimes spread over blank walls from floor to ceiling, using construction-grade blue and orange chalk and a snap-line tool. “I act on the principle that the best way to attain intimate material knowledge is through first hand experiences,” she has said, “running the string through my fingers, understanding the sensation of the string tension in my hand, knowing the angle the body of the tool has to rest to control the amount of chalk spilled.”
