Three Types of Clufffaloes
April 29 – May 22, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, April 29 | 6-9PM
ArtHelix is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Charles Clough.
Charles Clough is a “Pictures Generation” artist by virtue of his inclusion in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition of that title. Three Types of Clufffaloes at ArtHelix is Clough’s 66th solo exhibition and 18th in New York City.
The “Three Types” are Places, Seasons and Numbers. Paintings in the Places series are made in conjunction with museums, with public participation in a prescribed length of time and finished by Clough. Paintings in the Seasons series are made exclusively at the Roycroft in East Aurora, New York, developed by all who wish to participate over the course of each season. At the end of the season, Clough finishes the paintings by grinding and polishing. Paintings in the Numbers series are painted by Clough alone.
More than 600 of Clough’s works are held in the permanent collections of over 70 museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
Clough is a 2016 John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellow. Clough has also received grants from the New York State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation.
In 1974 Clough founded Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, in Buffalo, NY, with Robert Longo, Cindy Sherman, Nancy Dwyer, Michael Zwack, Diane Bertolo and others.
