Our new shopping bag is by Scottish poet and artist Thomas A. Clark. The canvas tote features the words, “WHAT YOU SEEK IS NEAR,” from Friedrich Holderlin’s poem “The Homecoming.”
Carry it with you, and let it guide your wanderings. Take it home with you, and let it remind you of what is already near.
- THOMAS A. CLARK
The poet Thomas A Clark lives in a small fishing village on the east coast of Scotland. His books, The Hundred Thousand Places(Carcanet Press 2009) and Yellow & Blue (Carcanet Press 2014), explore the landscape and culture of the western highlands and islands. Numerous small publications from his own Moschatel Press investigate ways that presentation can inform meaning, while his works off the page bring imaginative space to public or domestic situations. During the summer months, with the artist Laurie Clark, he runs Cairn, a space for minimal and conceptual art.
