Depicting a world of nature and imagination, Alan Clark’s work reflects a lifetime of questioning and discovery, and his appreciation of how cultural influences, even from the ancient past, can be transformed into a very personal present. In his images, the reality of imagination links intimately with the emotional, psychological, and spiritual events of a life lived as openly and freely as possible.

Alan Clark's watercolors offer iconic images wrapped in mystery and recollections of far-off lands. The rich saturated color he achieves with the medium is easily identifiable in art communities as diverse as MidCoast Maine and Mexico City, Mexico. At times they are illustrations for the plays and poems Clark writes, and other times the inspiration for such writings, they have been a constant in Clark's body of work spanning over 30 years.
