There’s a palpable sense of longing in the work of David Ivan Clark, a painter whose solo exhibition “Mirage” opens Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Susan Calloway Fine Arts.
It’s partly a longing for place, specifically the landscape of Saskatchewan, where Clark grew up, and whose plains, sandhills and forests are evoked in his art. But it also is a longing for something less physical. Clark’s pictures are abstract enough that they also call to mind the worn and weathered surfaces ---- and perhaps, by implication, the virtues ---- of a rural world that is both vanishing and undervalued.
