NEW ARRIVALS AT SMITHKLEIN GALLERY
Time and its Companions
The artworks of Clayton Bass are inspired by his passion for nature and astronomy as well as the profound physical beauty and cultures of the Southwest, intersecting with his imagination and dreams. Stylistically, his works explore realism seen through the lens of surrealism, symbolism, and allegory. Viewers are invited to create their own story in response to the visual elements. His current painting series, Waking Dreams, incorporates narrative elements referencing the cycles of nature and the passage of time, infused with a strong sense of place.
