Statement

Artist Statement

Whether I'm combining clay with 3-D printing or trying to mash Postmodernism and Mystery together into some sort of new theology, I always seem to be sparking opposites off one another: Seeing what happens next provides endless fun.  I use the figure to engage us in the investigation, and because I find it an ever-challenging form at multiple levels -- formal/physical, art-historical, psychological.

 

Biography

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.
