Burlington City Arts

Clark Derbes

April 15, 2016 - June 25, 2016

The abstract constructions of BCA’s 2015 Barbara Smail Award winner, Clark Derbes, combined the vernacular of Louisiana craft and folk art, with Op-Art and geometric pattern-based painting. Derbes’ use of vivid colors, playful titles and sincere execution collapsed the cold distance of modernism to highlight the humanity behind the construction of an art object.
