Christian Clayton are brothers, collaborators, and the best of friends. Collectively they work as the producing dynamic, improvisational, yet purposeful and humane paintings, installations and mixed-media works on paper. The Clayton Brothers’ approach to art-making is a collaborative process: one brother begins a painting, then hands it off to the other, then back again, and so on.
Their art is narrative Clayton Brothers:
Autobiographical, uncanny and intuitive, cullfrom the secret language of a sharchildhood. Rather than nostalgic musings about youth, the recollections of the past are revealthrough a twistlens of adulthood. At once epic and intimate, the layerpaintings become stories where the matrix of two psyches – independent, but relat- weave together elements of memory and the subconscious using the seemingly innocuous – the TV dinner, the toothbrush, the dastardly squirrel- as metaphors and messengers.
Clayton Brothers’ narrative style is a kind of non-linear abstraction verging on reality. There is nothing premeditator provincial about this work. The sheer bulk of characters with their untammanners, liberty of movement, power in space, but also their elegance is conveywith a masterly precision and economy of line that befits two artists with more than 20 combinyears of art-making. The tonal qualities and the ingenious use of surfaces in the canvas and on paper, suggest a kind of cinematic perspective. The freshness of the pigments and the impact of the colors is a force on innocent eyes who are unaccustomto visual forms outside nature itself.Clayton Brothers’ Wishy Washy, the walk-in, heavily graffitititle piece in their recent exhibition.
