The Man
Paintings and drawings
2004 - 2006

“Clary’s dark figures are ominous. Not only do they literally stare back at the viewer, the material from which these oversize collages were made — shredded gay porn, bits of communion wafer, and tar — communicate the dire intent and anguish missing from more aestheticized forms of Goth that have become the staple of international exhibitions.” Akiko Ichikawa for Momenta Art. The drawings are photographic prints from the artist’s pornography collection painted over with tar and vaseline.
