About Krista Clark
Krista Clark draws moments between presence and absence in the historic West End Atlanta neighborhood of Westview. As the city’s sprawl changes the landscape, Westview’s Craftsman bungalows are in constant danger of erasure. As demographics shift, families are displaced, and vibrant homes are replaced by fences, dumpsters, blue tarps, and tools for large-scale construction, if not demolished entirely. In Atlanta Contemporary’s Sliver Space, Clark will mimic these environments by physically drawing in space, re-creating these architectural gestures while they are in a state of flux.
