Nuala Clarke 
“One of One Thousand Worlds” 
boltax.gallery announces a new project by New York-based, Irish artist Nuala Clarke. The site specific installation, "One of One Thousand Worlds" takes place in the "Kaboose" a defunct, red Lakawanna Train Car, located on Pier 66, on the Westside Highway and 26th Street at the Fountain Art Fair. 
The Fair opens to the press on Thursday, March 4, 2010 and to the public Friday, March 5th thru Sunday, March 7th, 2010.
Ms. Clarke began the piece “One Thousand Worlds” after hearing an excerpt from a letter Keats wrote to his sister assuring her of his joy in being alone and creative “I feel more and more every day, as my imagination strengthens, that I do not live in this world alone but in a thousand worlds– No sooner am I alone than shapes of epic greatness are stationed around me, and serve my Spirit.” (Keats, October 25, 1818)  
Nuala made the first template for this as a hand drawn circle while on residency at The Ballinglen Arts Foundation, in Co. Mayo in the west of Ireland. There, something informative and generative arose in the repetitious documenting of familiar structures and order, creating relationships between memory and the experience of this world. These microcosms became Petri dishes in which almost daily and spontaneously, visions of longing or alternately pure pattern, are given equal space. 
From March 2008 to December 2009, Nuala created one thousand 7x 7" modified mono-prints.
Now, within this wood-paneled and well-traveled space, Nuala has created "One of One Thousand Worlds". The results of gleaning, mapping, experiences of the sun and the sea, dictionary definitions and a general obsession with the word “matter” fill the space in this site specific installation. 
This “one world” born of the thousand others, encompasses a multitude of bare creative moments and is a document of observation and connectionNuala Clarke
