Clark Richert: Pattern and Dimensions
On view through September 15, 2019
Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA)
“Pattern and Dimensions” is a survey exhibition that highlights more than five decades of work by Colorado-based artist Clark Richert. Spanning the museum’s entirety and totaling over forty works, the exhibition emphasizes the evolution of Richert’s practice—from his early years at the University of Kansas to his time in Colorado, spent in Boulder, Trinidad, and Denver. Inspired by artist Mark Rothko’s (1903-1970) use of color and by inventor and architect Buckminster Fuller’s (1895-1983) theories on the structure of the universe, Richert’s practice explores symmetry, patterns, and geometry through painting and other media.
