NEW YORK, NY.- Right on the heels of the critically acclaimed exhibition, 'American Travelers', at the Hispanic Society Museum in New York, where the paintings of Timothy J. Clark, hung alongside Childe Hassam, El Greco and Goya, Lois Wagner Fine Arts opened the 'Timothy J. Clark: Modern Master' exhibition currently on view at 15 East 71st Street, Suite 2A, until March 10th.

“My work in watercolor continues to adapt long-forgotten furtive painting methods that were mastered by Turner and Sargent," says Timothy J. Clark. “Using delicate archival papers, feather quills, hand-ground paint, and Buddhist candles, the exhibition at Lois Wagner Fine Arts merges both expression and joyous techniques, all part of the visual orchestra of color and light.”

Christopher Byron Crossman, the noted art historian and curator says, “Clark reminds us that watercolors are about how time looks and feels, special moments that can simultaneously resonate with the past but be brought close to a consoling present through a master’s touch.” Among the paintings that convey this sentiment are Foyer Lights, Mid-Coast Gulf Station, Boxing Gloves, Lois’ Paris Bicycle, Plaza Garibaldi, and Prelude to Nessum Dorma.

Last year, Clark was asked to create new works for his one-man show, at Howard University, namely portraits of the “family” of friends with whom he has maintained close personal relationships throughout his life. Among them were the painters Gaye Ellington, the granddaughter of Duke Ellington, Faith Ringgold, whose portrait Faith Ringold with Die, was purchased by the National Portrait Gallery, and James Little; as well as musicians Jack McVea, Teddy Buckner, Art Davis, Michael White, and others from the world of jazz.

Says Ms. Wagner: “I am delighted to present the evocative work of Timothy Clark, considered among America’s foremost watercolor artists, who is hailed for his still lifes, architectural interiors and exteriors, and portraits.”
