Big rock and driftwood
June 4, 2015 - July 1, 2015
Venerable Eugene artist Mark Clarke is best known for his quietly powerful landscapes of the Willamette Valley and central Oregon coast. He says of himself, “I still think of myself as an old landscape painter.” Some paintings begin on location, while others are entirely from his imagination. Drawn from a lifetime of living in and painting this region, Clarke’s vision of the landscape is soft and luminous, almost dream-like.
Born in 1936 in Junction City, Clarke began painting as a child. He studied art at Oregon State University and received a M.F.A. from the University of Oregon in 1965. His vision has been influenced by his long friendship with Nelson Sandgren and his teachers, David McCosh, Andy Vincent, Jan Zach, as well as his wife, fellow painter, Margaret Coe.
