The poet Thomas A Clark lives and works in Pittenweem in Fife. During the summer months, with the artist Laurie Clark, he runs Cairn Gallery, a space for minimal and conceptual art.
Three collections of Clark’s poetry, The Hundred Thousand Places (2009), Yellow and Blue (2014) and Farm by the Shore (2017), all published by Carcanet Press, explore the landscape and culture of the Highlands and Islands.
Numerous small books, cards and editions from Moschatel Press, often in collaboration with Laurie Clark, investigate ways that the presentation of poetry can inform meaning. Many works away from the printed page, such as those included in Lines from Scotland, attempt to bring imaginative space to public or domestic situations.
