David A. Clark
David is a multidisciplinary artist that has distinguished himself as a unique and groundbreaking innovator with encaustic, a painting medium that involves beeswax, pigment and heat.

Incorporating the arrow, David’s work explores universal themes of humanity through movement, the passage of time and meditations on direction, impulse or legacy. Together these serve as a metaphor for the journey or state of humankind.

Recently, David’s work has appeared in more than 40 solo and group shows across the country. In addition to many corporate and private collections, his work can be found at the Process Museum in Tucson, Arizona as well as the Hunterdon Art Museum in Hunterdon, New Jersey. David’s work has also appeared in many publications including Surface Design Journal, Encaustic Art in the 21st Century, Authentic Visual Voices: Contemporary Paper and Encaustic, Encaustic Works 2010 and numerous issues of Art in Print Magazine.

An internationally recognized teacher and lecturer, David recently taught printmaking in the Netherlands. He is a frequent guest artist teacher at R & F Handmade Paints and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, and has lectured numerous times at the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, Massachusetts. David lives and works in Palm Springs, California.
