Jon Claytor Captures Quirky Moments in Time

Jon Claytor’s work has been called cinematic, natural, audacious, and rudumentary, but I believe the most accurate description comes from the artist himself. A quote attribute to Claytor states, "The painting is never finished so much as paused, and, like a snapshot, only a moment is captured of an ever-changing life."

When looking at one of Jon Claytor’s paintings, I do get the sense that the subject has just stopped for a moment, just long enough for Claytor to capture what was going on inside of them of them and transport those emotions to the surface of the painting.

Works from two of Jon Claytor’s exhibitions, ‘Naked’ and ‘Until the Break of Day,' have caught the attention of many an eye at the Ingram Gallery where he is represented.
