Ronald V. Clayton

(Salt Lake City, UT, 1946 – 2018, Des Plaines, Illinois)

Ronald Clayton was born in Salt Lake City in 1946. He was educated at the University of Utah, BFA 1973, and at Cranbrook Academy, MFA 1975. Clayton was Professor of Painting and Drawing at Southeast Missouri State University. He Chaired the Department of Art at Southeast from 1999 - 2002. Clayton uses invented architectural forms as a metaphor for the man made world and idealized landscape to signify nature. The personal fictions present in the works of Ronald Clayton are both inspiring and challenging. Dualities are at play throughout the work: depth of space and articulated surface, the geometric and the organic, culture and nature, the familiar and the new. Clayton's two lynchpins are the biographical narrative of our experience with particular landscapes, and the imagined architectural ruins he places within them.
