Contemporary Figurative Sculpture by Bob Clyatt
explores points of contact between our ancient human coding and contemporary social and
economic concerns. Issues of sexuality, relationships between generations, accessing a
collective consciousness and experiencing music and ritual are all engaged. Earth itself (clay)
and traditional ceramic methods are combined with modern processes, sensibilities and
materials (3-D printing, custom polymers) to literally encode these investigations directly in
the art object.
Bob Clyatt lives and has his studio in Rye, NY.
Please Inquire at any of the galleries carrying Bob's work (or
directly with the artist) for availability, location, pricing and
production / delivery details.
Stumble, 26"L, available in aluminum (shown

FigLeaf, Installation view at CutLog Art Fair, NYC, 2013. Four lifesize torso elements,
Surveillance Camera, all raku-fired stoneware, paint. Additional individual
camouflaged/vagina elements (lifesize).
This piece uses different ways of digitally camouflaging (or not) the vagina as a way to
explore ancient and contemporary taboo surrounding genitals, as well as issues of the
relationship between government and individuals. Lower left camouflage pattern (detail
view) courtesy Netherlands Ministry of Defense, which developed this with Google to be
used whenever a Dutch military installation is viewed via Google Earth. Pelco security
camera housing cast in stoneware and raku-fired, wall-mounted.
FigLeaf was also used during performances of Off The Muff, at White Box NY, produced
and directed by Elisa Blynn, June 2013.
Zach, Age 59, Montclair NJ, Dancing to Devo, August
2013. Raku fired stoneware, 22"H. This is the first in a new
narrative series of real people dancing to music. Dance is one
of the first things humans did that differentiated us from
animals, connecting to beat and music, experiencing our
bodies, creating ritual. As such I am interested in how that
ancient activity manifests itself today.
