Untitled evokes finger painting because of the way the enamel paint was applied to the paper. In fact, in the early 1990s Clough’s desire to tap into the uninhibited creativity universally inherent in childhood prompted him to develop unique “big finger” tools in order to make massive collaborative paintings. Clough’s application of paint also illustrates his faithfulness to gestural abstraction rooted in abstract expressionism. Clough once said: “There are two ways to enjoy painting. One is to view it, the other is to do it.”
