Collection: WILD GOOSE

WILD GOOSE explores landscape painting through the parallel practices of two artists — Carl Clark and Jack Arthur Wood Jr. 

Titled after the first line in American singer/songwriter Gram Parsons’ A Song for YouWILD GOOSE traverses fuchsia landscapes and psychedelic horizons, spaces realized by the artists’ dreams of wandering away from the city. Clark paints at home in Minneapolis during Interact’s online studio hours, and Wood in his studio in Queens, New York.  

Filling boundless skies and seas with measured, even marks, Clark takes a pragmatic approach to painting. His work is profoundly stark and flat, often with dramatic shifts in scale. Wood, who takes an experimental approach, covers the surface of each piece with a kaleidoscopic accumulation of paper scraps, muslin, and linen, sometimes adding strips of a beloved item of clothing.  

The pandemic has brought into focus the ways that we inhabit space. When New York shut down last spring, Wood made paintings to escape. For Clark, the transition to working from home blurred the lines between studio hours and domestic life. The exhibition includes Morning Stone, a painting of a sunrise from 2021, which is the first piece that he made at the desk in his room.

WILD GOOSE explores the tensions between connection and space, in terms of relationships to oneself, to others, and to the land. Clark’s and Wood’s paintings stretch to meet each other across distances, finding common ground in that resolute sense of longing we have felt deeply during the pandemic.
