auction this Friday, March 25, 2011 at Morris & Whiteside Galleries, Hilton
Head Island, South Carolina.

Clark Hulings respected the ordinary and made it extraordinary. He created his
own formula for expressing beauty, which he often uncovered in places where
others might see only misery. Hulings traveled extensively throughout his
life, scouring remote countryside and faraway towns for subject matter well
into his eighties. Lauded for his brilliance at manipulating values,
perspective and composition, Hulings' technique was a marriage of traditional
and cutting edge - a combination of formal training, life experience and a
willingness to experiment to achieve his desired effects. He employed a
smorgasbord of strategies culled from many schools of painting.
