For the past fifty-five years, Hulings (born 1922) has traveled the back roads and byways of three continents, painting the splendor of work-a-day life. His sustained efforts have produced a body of work with exceptional breadth. Known equally for his still lifes, portraits, landscapes, and genre scenes, his paintings display a mastery of drawing, design, texture, gesture and atmosphere. As noted in the Christian Science Monitor, Clark Hulings “describes the air itself."
