ABOUT THE WORK
Contemporary iconography gets a hit of gravitas in Melbourne based ceramicist Jake Clark’s body of work. Widely known for his handmade, folksy takes on memorabilia-esque vessels, Clark cleverly recasts familiar locations, brands, and media, spanning high-brow culture to low-brow mainstays. With a deftness of symbol, Clark stimulates both personal meaning and societal memory associated with the ever-present language of advertising. We are proud to have collaborated with Clark to create a ceramic sculpture edition, drawing on another type of cultural classic — the UFO. During a time when alienation has become near status-quo, the edition serves as a reminder that visual language can be playful, connective, and serve to brighten our lives.
Jake Clark has a solo show currently on view at Allouche Benias Gallery (Athens) through May 31, 2022. He has also held solo exhibitions at Rodolphe Janssen (Brussels), Galerie Julien Cadet (Paris), Bill Brady Gallery (Miami), ATM Gallery (New York) and Kantor Gallery (Los Angeles). Select group exhibitions include presentations at Albertz Benda (Hong Kong), Woaw (Hong Kong), Galeria Yusto / Giner (Marbella), Rodolphe Janssen (Brussels), Galeria Mascota (Aspen), and Harper’s Books at Beverly Hills Hotel, among others. Clark currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
