About Edward Clark

Edward Clark is best known for his “push-broom technique” in which he uses a household broom, occasionally guided by wooden tracks, to cover a canvas in sweeping strokes of color. Clark was drawn to this kind of nontraditional practice after living in Paris in the early 1950s, where he abandoned representational imagery for the creative freedom of the abstract expressionist movement. He has also been credited as one of the first artists to use shaped canvases. Clark continues to find inspiration for his experimental work through extensive travels.

American, b. 1926, New Orleans, LA, United States
