Clayton Schiff

November 28, 2022 - November 12, 2023

 

Clayton Schiff (b. 1987, New York, lives and works in New York)

Clayton Schiff gathers impressions of an unconscious that distorts, displaces, enlarges, and compresses experiences accumulated while awake. His haunting iconography simultaneously evokes alienation with fantastical creatures and strange landscapes that have a subtlety and lightness that is playful and even humorous.
