Nannette Acker Clark, American
Philadelphia based artist.
She is specifically inspired by the philosophy practiced in the Congo, where the soul, like the sun, is thought to have four moments. Birth is the dawn, the flourishing of life is noon, the end of life is sunset, and midnight is the return to dawn as succeeding generations.
Clark has created many variations for each moment but they all share similar characteristics and techniques. Like a spiritual journey, Clark continues to explore, modify and expand her artistic vision.
Nannette Acker Clark has exhibited throughout the United States including the American Craft Museum, New York; The Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; The American Jazz Museum, Kansas City; State Museum of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg; African-American Museum, Philadelphia; and The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia. Her work is represented by the Sande Webster Gallery.
