Naomi Clark received her MFA in painting from Pratt Institute. Naomi co- founded and works with a collaborative art group, Fort Makers. Her initial collaboration with Fort Makers, The Blanket Project, was a natural progression from the work she did for her senior thesis show. At Pratt, Naomi painted found objects and described her process as a “reverse Duchampian approach.” In her exploration of breaking free from the canvas, Naomi has painted Fort Makers’ ties, blankets, scarves, dresses, lamp shades and pillows, as well as stage backdrops for MoMA PS1’s Warm Up series and site specific installations including one at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. Naomi's work has been featured in NY Magazine, The New York TImes, Elle Italia, Brooklyn Magazine, Paper and Su-En Magazine. Naomi’s major influences include Sol LeWitt, Louise Bourgeois, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Mitchell and Willem De Kooning.
Naomi Sarah Clark is a contemporary abstraction painter who pulls form from classical painting and references. Her work pulses, landing on beats of both recognizable form and abstract motions.
