Thomas A. Clark UK

Thomas A. Clark was born in Greenock, Scotland. In 1973, with his wife Laurie, he started Moschatel Press as a vehicle for small publications by Ian Hamilton Finlay, Cid Corman, Jonathan Williams and others. In 1986, the Clarks opened Cairn Gallery, on of the earliest of 'artist-run spaces' specialising in land art, minimalism and a lyrical or poetic conceptualism, which is now located in a small fishing village in Fife. In addition to his books and smaller publications, Clark has also made site-specific installations in galleries, gardens and in the landscape, and has many works in permanent collections world-wide.
