WHO WE ARE
Oliver and Miranda Clark are two sculptors currently based in Missouri. Oliver is known for his complex, large-scale steam-bent sculptures while Miranda focuses on community-centered design and public works. Their visual languages are opposite, but equally seated in art history and finding beauty in the world. Their work converges as Clark Studios.
Miranda Clark is a sculptor who received her B.F.A from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2014. Shortly after, Clark completed a two year residency with the Charlotte Street Studio Program and participated in the Kansas City Collection, a competitive corporate art program. Clark’s interest in architecture and interactive sculpture led to her position on the West Bottoms Reborn Project, a NEA Our Town Grant to design public space in a stockyards district of Kansas City. Clark’s work explores the physicality of personal memories through sculpture and large-scale installations. The 24-mile long Causeway Bridge in her home of New Orleans cultivates the architectural presence within her practice.
Oliver T. Clark lives and works in Missouri. In 2014, he received a BFA in Sculpture and Art
History from the Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI). Clark’s work has been exhibited at the
Arboretum in Overland Park, KS, ArtPrize 10 in Grand Rapids, MI, and the International
Sculpture Conference in Kansas City, MO.
His work is held in private collections in Kansas City, MO, St Joseph, MO, and Breckenridge,
CO. In 2018, Clark won an ArtsKC Inspiration Grant to travel to England to study steam bending
and research Gothic Revival woodworking that influenced his great-grandfather.
