"From embracing the Sacred Feminine and hearing Creation speak, to the merging of old and new ideas to create a better today, the topics I touch on have deep meaning for me. I drew inspiration from the phases of the Moon and from Eclipses, which are both perennial symbols change and transformation; something I think this World needs.
This collection also reflects my desire to continue my own growth and change, both personally and artistically, with the hope of never meeting anyone in the same place twice."
Using multiple layers of imagery and exceptional precision, Clinton’s works are compounded and blended in a way that creates bold, impactful formline designs, but also that hides secrets and surprises not quite appreciated at first glance. One must spend time delving into the interwoven lines, colors and textures of Clinton’s visual imagination in order to deepen the understanding of his method and message.
Showing us the bonds between traditional formline and contemporary abstraction, between organic, celestial tones and bright, contemporary colors, Clinton’s work represents a voice of the new generation of artists bursting onto the art scene today. We can see through Clinton’s eyes that the perspectives of history and legacy are adapting and changing to become unique visions of the future and of the roles that indigenous identities play in it.
This collection celebrates and honors the lunar cycles of a year, thirteen lunar months that affect the processes of all life on earth.
