    • Christian Clayton

      For brothers Rob and Christian Clayton, collaboration is more than a process: the concept of symbiosis resonates through every aspect of their paintings and installations. In a practice devoid of ego and restraint, the Clayton brothers intuitively develop intense, compacted narratives. They seldom work on the same canvas at the same time, or discuss of their projects during making. Playing off their unspoken synergy, they take turns inventing, adding to, and editing each piece, propelling their "stories" through spontaneous improvisation. Entwining their independent approaches, styles, and palettes, their works operate as co-authored epics, fusing the concept of self with the communal. The Clayton brothers draw inspiration from their immediate environment, incorporating local businesses, neighborhood regulars, and snippets of overheard conversations as subjects for their paintings. Composing their pieces conjunctively, motifs, gestures, places, and figures reoccur within different works, creating interlinked dramatic scripts. Set on collaged canvases, the physical layering of their surfaces reflects their condensed tableaux. Approaching painting as a visual representation of pure energy, everyday scenes explode in vortexes of blinding colour, animated movement, and product placement, giving the effect of viewing every frame of a film simultaneously. Through presenting a locality, the Clayton brothers relate the personal to the global. Offering a vision of America-as-it-is, they celebrate and share all its diverse, spectacular, and solitary splendor.

In her classes, independent studies, and projects conducted outside of the classroom, she asks students to consider their writing meaningful creative production worth sharing, editing a useful mode of thinking, and book-making an artistic and design project as germane and challenging as work they do in their major-related courses. New publications include "Here Is What I Know: I Know Very Little," a chapbook collaboration with Illustration student Jane Lee; and "Skin Doll," an artist''''s interactive iBook supported by an Art Center faculty development grant, available on iTunes September 2014.
