Artist Statement

Whether I’m combining clay with 3-D printing or trying to mash science and Mystery together into some new sort of theology, I basically am always trying to get opposites sparking off each together in my art.  Tying everything back to the figure helps me try to understand modern life in the context of our most ancient human concerns – things like sex, security, freedom, power, awareness of our existence.  I love the legacy of the old figurative sculptors and the challenge of making the figure contemporary.



Bob Clyatt grew up roaming the countryside of Northern California, ending up studying art at UC Berkeley. Absorbing those many influences created enduring patterns of fusion in Bob’s work – ancient and contemporary, organic and technological.   

During the 1990s Bob focused on business innovation founding distance learning firm HorizonLive (acquired by Blackboard) as well as i/o 360, an early New York City human-machine interaction design firm which was was acquired by a public company in 1998. He then returned to creating studio art with 8 years intensive study of sculpture, centering on his years at the Art Students League of New York under the guidance of Barney Hodes.  Bob has degrees from U.C. Berkeley and MIT, and lived in Europe and Asia for 5 years.  He lives and has his studio in Rye, NY.
