Please join us for a chat with former resident artist, Jonathan Clark, as he discusses the methods used in creating his colorful jewelry and sculptures. While you may have observed Clark at work in his studio, at this event, he will demonstrate the specific techniques he employs when creating his signature pencils and paper jewelry.

Jonathan Clark works with office supplies he manipulates to interpret nature’s process of intrinsic mathematical and divine proportions. The Divine Proportion is the base line equation for Clark’s creative process to unfold.  Found in nature from the furthest stars to our fingertips, it can be used as a tool for discovery and understanding of regenerative and harmonious forms. Experiencing the balance of the relationship of parts to the whole, he is able to explore endless creative possibilities. Jonathan enjoys the history of the proportion’s application in the arts and architecture because it subliminally references an inclusive relationship between us and nature.

While you’re in Asher Gallery, be sure to check out our Members’ Spotlight and Featured Artist Selections. Each month, we will highlight the process and technique of three Asher Gallery artists, along with offering discounted work exclusively to our members!
