Untitled

Charles Clough

High-gloss abstract expressionist painting in muted palette (dusty blue and green, gray, etc.). Pencil marks in left corner. Year (1982) signed in bottom right corner. Clough’s unique way of applying paint to the canvas results in a highly articulated and densely textured surface. “In place of the brush and other typical painter's tools, Clough uses an instrument he calls the ‘Big Finger,’ a large balloon-like contraption that he invented to spread poured house enamel on masonite into broad gestural constellations.” (Max Henry, “charles clough,” http://www.artnet.com/magazine_pre2000/reviews/henry/henry2-5-99.asp)
