SCULPTURAL WORK by Clay Enoch
This show is dedicated in loving memory of my Father who went to be with Jesus in September. Without his encouragement, support, and tireless endorsement, I would not be a sculptor. He believed in me and saw meaning in my work. He was a big fan of including written inspirations to accompany my pieces, so I have done that for this show. I love you and miss you, Pop.
Chaotic water is a Biblical theme that begins on page one and runs throughout, often representing a threat to human life.
Waters is sculptor Clay Enoch's six-piece exhibition of challenge…survival…and a God-way forward.
It is a personal reflection on the events he recently faced/that have threatened him, and the tangible God who reveals himself in, and through, and after the waters of life.
For many years, I have incorporated fused glass elements into my bronze figurative compositions. This show represents more exploration with bronze and terracotta into themes around water represented by resin and by kiln-cast glass.

As I see it, art is personal. It manifests from the deeper levels of an individual.
Because faith is an integral part of my life, when I sculpt, this theme surfaces
consistently. My work ranges in style from representational to abstract, but my
passion is to express the figure as simply as possible to capture the essence of
the pose and create space for the transcendent message to resonate with the viewer.
My work has been exhibited in galleries in Denver, Littleton, Colorado Springs,
Loveland, Breckenridge, and Vail, CO, Taos, NM, Naples, FL, Philadelphia, PA
Salt Lake City, Park City, and St. George, UT, and Memphis and Nashville, TN
