Factories & Fields
Clark-Pan Apparel is quality Accessories that are imaged or design by a husband and wife team Claude Lockhart Clark and Jian Ying Pan. The apparel items are Western designs and the images on T-shirts and tote bags represent various cultures, with major emphasis on ethnic heritages.
Clark has been classified as a fine artist since he left college. There is nothing wrong with that except most fine artists exhibit their work in places reserved for the dead. A very few people enjoy the work produced by Western Fine Artists. Either a select educated group and/or financially solvent group of people visit museum Mausoleums. Most Western fine art is buried while artists are still alive and people go to various gravesites around the world to visit their artwork.
Clark had an additional problem. His artwork was classified as ethnology. He had to find away to keep his work from disappearing into Anthropology basement cabinets before it had a chance to be seen or used by someone. African art and culture was never something acceptable to Europe and it became crystal clear that it would be unacceptable in European Western colonies as well. He had to find a vehicle for introducing African Artwork to a Western clientele.
He needed something that Westerners used on a daily basis and felt comfortable with. He decided to try T-shirts. The problem would be find subject mater that his prospects could identify with and feel comfortable with wearing, which wasn’t going to be easy.
