Collection: Clark Goolsby

Clark Goolsby's work is an observation on our current era of free visual circulation. He uses a variety of disparate elements within his work and places them without context as to how they were created or where they came from--much like using a Google image search and finding a picture disembodied from its original source. Together he forms these references into a chaotic world of brightly colored shapes and patterns engaged in a delicate balancing act. The end result is a visual paradox where each piece adds stress to a fragile, geometric web that's tenuously held together while always on the verge of breaking apart. Goolsby studied art at the University of California in San Diego, and has exhibited his work in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. He currently lives and works in New York.
