Ken Clark, one of the New Zealand artists to be selected for the 'On Screen' project at the Saatchi Gallery in London, was born in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1957. His early work has been mainly in film and television as a film and videotape editor, animator and director. Ken has also tutored CGI and Stop Motion animation courses at Ara Institute of Canterbury/CPIT and wrote the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approved, course 'Introduction to 3D animation' used by the National College of Multimedia and Technology. He has a Graduate Certificate in Design from CPIT and a BFA (Hons) from Canterbury University. His artwork divides into two areas, figurative and abstracted images, but both usually start with filmed or digitally captured images. Multilayered images arise in which the seemingly certain reality is questioned. By applying abstraction, he finds that new realities are created which reveal the inseparable relationship between the artist and the viewer.
He has had solo exhibitions and been part of group exhibitions locally (New Zealand), in Europe and the USA. He has works represented exclusively in Miami by d|a|c (design art concepts), nationally by 12 Gallery and Chambers Gallery, and internationally by Linus Galleries.
