Rob Clayton, a full-time member of the ArtCenter faculty, graduated from ArtCenter with honors. In his new body of solo work, Rob explores the ideas of self-process through environmental sculpture and painting. Utilizing skills learned over the past 20 years of teaching, pushing concepts of narrative and/or illustration, he has recently started to explore unconventional means of fabrication generated in a true DIY spirit. Previously, Rob and his brother, Christian Clayton, collaborated in an unconventional practice in which each continuously adapted, transformed, and re-worked mixed media pieces that the other had created separately. The resulting rich and dynamic work was filled with multiple marks, gestures and techniques, symbols and metaphors that delved into memory and subconscious while engaged with the culture that surrounded them. National and international exhibitions of this highly personal and idiosyncratic work included major shows in China and Europe.
