Art Mediums: Painting, Multimedia
In partnership with VICTA
Clarke Reynolds, born with limited sight, has navigated a path defined by both challenges and triumphs. His early inspiration from Franz Marc's "The Yellow Cow" ignited a passion for art, leading him to pursue a BA honors degree in model making. Despite setbacks, including the loss of his sight and a career in dental model making, Reynolds' artistic spirit remained undiminished. His discovery of textiles and Braille transformed his creative process, allowing him to explore art through touch and sound.
His use of dots, inspired by pointillism and Braille, is a recurring motif, symbolizing his journey and the evolving nature of his vision. Through his innovative use of Braille, Reynolds challenges its conventional boundaries, using it as a medium to express the descriptive power of the English language.
The American Words is more than an art exhibition; it's an interactive experience that invites us to perceive language and communication in new, inclusive ways, emphasizing the joy of discovery through tactile and visual means.
