We’ve all heard about artists with physical limitations who learn to adapt and create magical artwork or music despite not being able to see, hear, use their hands, etc. It’s always inspiring to read those stories, and if you’ve ever tried to paint with your feet or play the piano with your eyes closed, you know it’s no easy task to do those things. Artist Jared Clark doesn’t have any physical limitations, but he makes his art as if he does, if that makes sense. This is a sampling of his art created with Sharpie markers, but seeing the pictures below of how this art was created is almost more interesting than the artwork itself.
In these examples, Jared used his face or his arm to prop up the Sharpie markers so they would bleed all over the paper. This collection is called Bleeder, and it reminds me of artwork a child might create before he or she learns that if you let a Sharpie marker sit on a piece of paper too long, it will bleed into one big blob of color. According to Jared, he uses “physical limitations as a way of keeping the images pure.”
This is the kind of artwork that makes me wonder how the artist got this idea in the first place. What makes a person decide to use physical limitations when it seems like most artists would use all their physical attributes to their full potential to create the best art possible? I don’t understand it, but I like it a lot. Sharpie markers have always been fun to work with, but this is definitely a new approach.
