DAVID CLARK ENCAUSTIC PRINTMAKER

EXTRORDINARE

Working in his studio/gallery in the Backstreet

Art District in Palm Springs, you

will find David Clark. David is a multi-talented

artist who began his career as an

actor. Acting with the director Peter Sellars

in Nixon China at the Brooklyn Academy

and in Salome at La Scala in Milan with

the avant-garde director Robert Wilson.

Following his work in Performing, he went

behind the scenes and worked with Sex &

The City with set building, costumes, etc.

Through all of his performing career, he

was also painting. After Sex & The City

completed it’s run in 2004 he returned to

the visual arts and became a renown creator

in encaustic.

Encaustic is a centuries old painting medium

using wax, resin, and pigment. Mixing

color pigment into the wax creates a glossy

brilliant effect enhancing the color pigment

that characterizes the paintings in which

it is used. David was first introduced to

encaustic through the work of Jasper Johns

and Linda Benglis in the 1970’s. David,

however, uses encaustic as a printing

medium. He says when he is printing, he

lays out everything in advance because the

materials are fluid and change from moment

to moment. He says that “ what you

do with your hands serves the ideas that are

in your head.”

that he sees arrows a metaphor for being.

He said the arrow can symbolize the human

body, an expression of movement, time or a

state of being, an illustration of journey or

state of humankind.

You may see David’s work at his studio/

gallery at certain times. His studio is a

working studio as well as a gallery of some

of his work. However, when he is working

he is not always open for visitors viewing.

We found him during the First Wednesday

Art Walk at the Backstreet Art District off

highway 111 behind the Mercedes-Benz

Dealership. David also teaches encaustic

techniques at various venues throughout

the year. His work is displayed in numerous

galleries throughout the United States.

We are very fortunate to have him among

us in Palm Springs as a multi-talented creative

artist.

Questions, Comments, suggestions, contact

at - adamsartexpose@gamail.com

Many of David’s prints include arrows.

When I started to discuss his work with

him in his studio, I asked if he was involved

in archeology or paleontology because the

use of arrows in his prints reminded of ancient

hunters and tools. He replied he was

not involved in any of those sciences but

in the ceiling for slings; which are available for

rent, or you can bring your own. On Saturday

night after the contest there will be a men’s play

Breaking It AS IT happens

Retail Apocalypse by Ray

Shop Locally and save US!

Remember the day when Sears checked

your breaks free but always found a problem

so bad they had to fix it? Or stores

created some crazy need to lower prices

the day after Thanksgiving so that people

massed and trampled each other to buy a

inferior product made in china at a price

so low, American manufacturing companies

went bankrupt. The truth is I never

wanted anything that badly that would be

sold at those stores. Nonetheless, these big

box stores helped create our bad economy

that laid off thousands of workers then

over worked part time workers to avoid

paying a living wage or insurance. They

dumped those massive profits into feel

good ads, lobbyists, and electing others

that would lower taxes and remove regulations?

Recently they elected a President

that promised them bigger tax breaks and

removed all safety barriers and regulations.

Some still hope it was a trick. Trump is

secretly for the little guy but needed greedy

corporations to get elected, then he would

stick it to them. Not holding my breath on

that. Here are the numbers:

Sears & Kmart – 66 additional stores

RadioShack – 1,000 stores

Michael Kors – 125 stores

Payless Shoes– 512 stores and counting…

Rue21 – 400 stores (forever 21 for the teen

age girl in all of us)

J.C. Penney – 138 stores

Macy’s – 68 stores more to come

Bebe Stores – 180 stores

Abercrombie & Fitch – 60 stores

Guess – 60 stores

Crocs – 160 stores

The Limited – 250 stores

Wet Seal – 171 stores

American Apparel – 110 stores

BCBG – 120 stores

Gander Mountain – Undetermined

hhgregg – 220 stores

GameStop – 150+ stores

Staples – 70 stores

CVS – 70 stores

Family Christian – 240 book stores

All this year!

Quick: dump gift cards ASAP like oil in a

clean river.

Next: Going out of business is the same as

shopping craigslist. Even with a warranty

they cannot honor?

JERSEY’S JOURNAL by jersey Shore

Ever feel like you are wading in a pool of

stagnant water? You sit there stewing in

your own juices with no movement and

no circulation. It starts to get thick and the

feeling you get is an indescribably irritating.

Something needs to touch that water

and poke at it to make some waves. With

one wave forms another, and well you

know the story.

I’ve got stagnant water and I am waiting for

that precise moment to poke my finger in

it and make some waves. If a wave doesn’t

form soon, then I feel I will drown. That is

an even worse feeling, but whatever goes

down, must go up. It’s a called a gag reflex.

It’s a great feeling waiting for that big wave

to come in and ship you off, but anticipation

is much more than a Carley Simon

song. Like a kid at Christmas with presents

under the tree. You just can’t wait. The

waiting. Knowing it will be worth it? Here’s

hoping. It could be a total disaster, but

that’s another story. Our wave comes into

this scenario small but with every small

wave, builds into a larger wave building

with every movement, larger and larger.

Again and again, slowly but surely Shirley,

the boat begins to move. I’m currently in

stagnant mode with a middle finger waiting

to poke it. Give me some movement.

Poke me and make waves, I’m ready!

It only takes one jab to start the flow of

movement which turns into life. The more

you move in life the more you can accomplish.

Good or bad, you are moving with

the waves and creating life. Electric word

life, which means forever. Watch out for

electrical appliances and water. That can

make life go in another direction. You may

make them waves but be careful of the

velocity of the waves. Big isn’t always better.

Careful and considerate are the winners in

my book. No belly flops!

Peace, Love, and Waves,

Jersey

THE LAST WORD by Greg Pettis

Another week, another explosion in DC.

Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony

that the President 1) lied and 2) tried to get him to

stop the investigation of National Security Advisor

Flynn was bad enough but then the President

again insinuated he had tapes of conversations.

Now Republican Senators are demanding the

tapes or they will subpoena them - FINALLY!

Comey also stated that Vice President Pence, as

head of the transition team had to have known

about Flynn’s meetings with the Russians. Are we

now looking at collusion between both the President

and Vice President? Not to look too anxious

to step into the Oval Office - Speaker of the House

Paul Ryan instead comes across as a Bootlicker

Supreme saying to give the President a break, “He’s

new at this government thing”.

Attorney General Sessions goes before the Intelligence

Committee of the Senate this next week

to answer questions. First will be why did you lie

about how many meetings with Russians prior

to becoming AG? And what were the meetings

about? I predict he’ll be gone by July 4.

2018 is beginning to look like the year the Democrats

take back the House and possibly the

unthinkable, the Senate! I will be in Detroit next

week for a meeting of the Democratic National

Committee getting an update on our efforts to

regain majorities in both houses.

It is amazing how quickly this turnaround in CA

has been. We can see it even in the Coachella Valley

where Dems make up the majority of 5 of the 9

cities and are close in both La Quinta and Rancho

Mirage.

Congratulations go out to former Assemblyman

Manuel Perez on being appointed County Supervisor

ethic. Palm Desert Mayor Jan Harnik has already

announced her intention to run against him in

2018 for the seat and has taken a strong lead in

In Cathedral City, work continues on moving

forward to district maps for the next council elections

2018). There will be public hearings throughout

the summer with a final decision on boundaries

Meanwhile to their suburb to the west, the big

story is whether to ban leaf blowers citywide.

Interesting how priorities are different from one

Several resistance marches were held in the valley

this past week and will continue all summer culminating

in a mass rally in front of Cathedral City

Civic Center on Labor Day.

That’s it for now. Keep resisting!
