,_‘T.m really interested in look­
ing at general characteristics
and things that people go
through,” Clark explained.
... Clark-prefers to develop her
artwork in sets of two or three.
She focuses on making her
pieces (which seem rough ’bri
the outside) like a person’s feel­
ings by the material she puts oh
the inside. For example, she has
created pieces that form a type
of metal cage. She then puts
various ‘stuffing’ on the inside
such as feathers; rocks, straw
and hair 'to create a personal­
ity for the piece; ’
Clark’s artwork has also been
showcased at the "Nine-’ gal­
lery in Portland.
The second artist-to give a slide
show presentation was Robert
Dozono. He is on the painting
faculty at Portland Community
College. His four pieces on dis­
play followed a theme of recy­
cling. “Save the Earth,” “Fu­
tures and Securities,” “My
Backyard,” “Dream of the Fi­
nal Theory” and “Save. Our
Home” were all made using
items that should be, but seldom
are, recycled... The items in-

All of Dozono’s works are
done oneanvas, even though he
has to build' braces attached to
the ,back of his work to support
the weight of his recycled items.
“It’s about being responsible,”
Dozono said of hisdecision to cre­

take a- photograph of what he Sees
and then squeeze the image from a
rectangle to a square, distorting it-
slightly.
An • interesting point about
Dozono’s art work is that when a
person looks at it-clpse-up, it really
does just look like a lot of junk.
However, after taking a few, steps
back an image is seen, perhaps a
section of the forest or a raging
river.
Dirt with liquid plastic to hold
it together, that’s all it reallyMs,”
Dozono explains.
The show may be viewed from 8
a.m. to 10 p.rri., Monday through
Thursday and 8 a/m. to 5 p.m, Fri­
day in the Pauling Gallery. The ex­
hibit is free and open to the public.
