Painting: oil on masonite

Date: 1983

The Vogels began collecting Clough's art in 1978 and have to date acquired over 600 pieces. On his extensive Pepfog website, Clough states that "Painting is my behavior of choice in accordance with my belief that my gift of talent corresponds to that particular division of labor. I'm concerned with my impulses and how they coincide with moments in history. I'm not interested in the zeitgeist, believing that it is the artist, rather than the times, that leads. I make the paintings because they don't exist and soon enough, neither will I."
