Thomas A. Clark lives in the small fishing village of Pittenweem, on the East coast of Scotland. From 1986-2002, with the artist Laurie Clark, in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, he ran Cairn Gallery, one of the most respected small galleries of its time, showing minimal, conceptual and land art. Numerous small publications from Moschatel Press explore the structure of the book as imaginative space. His most recent collection is The Path To The Sea (Arc, 2005).
'Thomas A Clark is an installation artist whose book-length sequence The Hundred Thousand Places explores the landscape round Pittenweem on the Fife coast. There is little of Wordsworth's egotistical sublime on show here...The Hundred Thousand Places stands at a tentative and oblique angle to the more established modes of pastoral writing.' - David Wheatley, the Guardian.
