Synopsis: WILD GOOSE is an online exhibition exploring landscape painting through the parallel practices of two artists - Carl Clark and Jack Arthur Wood. Clark takes a pragmatic approach to painting, ﬁlling boundless skies and seas with measured, even marks. His paintings are stark and ﬂat with dramatic shifts in scale. Wood covers the surface of each piece with a kaleidoscopic accumulation of paper scraps, muslin, and linen, sometimes adding strips of an item of clothing.
Interact Center for Visual & Performing Arts presents WILD GOOSE, an online exhibition exploring landscape painting through the parallel practices of two artists - Carl Clark and Jack Arthur Wood, Jr. Clark paints at home in Minneapolis during Interact's online studio hours, and Wood in his studio in Queens, New York.
Titled after the ﬁrst line in American singer/songwriter Gram Parsons' A Song for You, WILD GOOSE traverses fuchsia landscapes and psychedelic horizons, spaces realized by the artists' dreams of wandering away from the city.

Clark takes a pragmatic approach to painting, ﬁlling boundless skies and seas with measured, even marks. His paintings are stark and ﬂat with dramatic shifts in scale.
Wood, who takes an experimental approach, covers the surface of each piece with a kaleidoscopic accumulation of paper scraps, muslin, and linen, sometimes adding strips of a beloved item of clothing.
The pandemic has brought into focus the ways that we inhabit space. When New York shut down last spring, Wood made paintings to escape. For Clark, the transition to working from home blurred the lines between studio hours and domestic life. The exhibition includes Morning Stone, a painting of a sunrise from 2021, which is the ﬁrst piece that he made at the desk in his room.
WILD GOOSE explores the tensions between connection and space, in terms of relationships to oneself, to others, and to the land. Clark's and Wood's paintings stretch to meet each other across distances, ﬁnding common ground in that resolute sense of longing we have felt deeply during the pandemic.
Carl Clark has practiced at Interact Center for Visual & Performing Arts since 2016.
Clark has presented work in exhibitions throughout the Twin Cities, including We Are Not Disposable (2020), Randomland at The White Page (2019), and Groundswell at Artspace Jackson Flats (2019). Clark's work is held in private collections in both the United States and abroad.
