Clark Hulings respected the ordinary and made it extraordinary. He created his own formula for expressing beauty, which he often uncovered in places where others might see only misery. Hulings traveled extensively throughout his life, scouring remote countryside and faraway towns for subject matter well into his eighties. Lauded for his brilliance at manipulating values, perspective and composition, Hulings’ technique was a marriage of traditional and cutting edge - a combination of formal training, life experience and a willingness to experiment to achieve his desired effects. He employed a smorgasbord of strategies culled from many schools of painting.
