Clark's collaged drawings and installations employ the visual language of modern architecture and the physicality of paper and other materials to depict the narratives and social histories contained by the built urban environment. While resolutely abstract, these works grapple with and implicate social dynamics such as gentrification and the ongoing displacement of Atlanta's Black, working class community by development.
