PREVIEW: Thursday, January 31, 6-8 pm 
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, February 1, 7 - 9 pm

Jared Clark, a Utah native who received his MFA from VCU in 2007, returns to Richmond with his latest ADA exhibit. Through his latest “kitschbilds,” assemblages of thrift-store and other found objects together with colorful resin, Clark carries on his lifelong obsession with rummage-sale detritus and continues to blur the line between painting and sculpture. In addition to providing the canvas for his arresting palette, the kitschbilds showcase Clark’s talent for diving headfirst into chaos, creating still more chaos, then bringing order out of it. Be they dense collections of kitschy sculptures or elegant, monochrome pieces of resin, Clark’s bilds suggest the infinite ways in which everyday objects can be reconfigured, re-contextualized, and reimagined.
