Clague, John

John Clague (b 1928)

John Clague has been an experimenter in sculpture and like many of the artists has worked in different ways-starting figuratively inspired by organic forms. The work shown explores nonrepresentational planes, shapes defined by color and patterns that change as one walks around it. Clague also explored kinetic sculptures that were sound producing, and two dimensional polished steel surfaces. He exhibited many works in the May Show. He was awarded the Cleveland Arts Prize in 1967. He was influenced by William McVey when a student at the Cleveland Institute of Art on his way to becoming a sculptor. He taught at Oberlin College from 1957 to 1961and at the Cleveland Institute of Art from 1956 to 1971. His work has been included in many museums exhibits including the Whitey Museum of American Art, New York City.
