digital painting mounted cibachrome face-into-plexi, 34x78 inches
in the collection of Roz Dimon and James Dawson
Clay was a very talented digital artist who created artwork using digital media in the early days of the dotcom - 1980s through 2007. He was part of a group Rachel Gelman (my professor at The School of Visual Arts in 1984) and I organized in New York City called "PICTURE ELEMENT."
His work deals with his devotion to the shape, meaning, and ultimate "logos" of words. His work is in the Fogg Museum, Harvard University, and The Brooklyn Museum among others.
My husband, James Dawson, and I purchased this work shortly after visiting Clay in San Francisco where we both were part of Michael Gosney's legendary "DIGITAL BE-IN" in 2004 with a guest appearance by Ram Dass.
Clay died in 2009 after a long battle with brain cancer. He lives here with us today. Salut to Clay.
