    Art Brokerage: J. Clayton Bright American Artist: b. 1946. Born in the Philadelphia area in 1946, Clayton initially enlisted in the army. Following his discharge, he worked in Australia, and then hitchhiked through the Far East, Middle East, and Europe. Upon his return to Philadelphia, he worked at the stock exchange until a chance encounter with a Jersey cow launched his career as a sculptor. Clayton first met the cow while walking through the countryside in 1977. Her alluring curves made a great impression on him and gradually the idea of the cow as a bronze took root. A sculptor friend gave an afternoon's instruction in the craft of sculpture and Clayton finished his first piece, Neilson's Cow, that year. Clayton combines his keen power of observation with his highly skilled craftsmanship to create bronzes that radiate with life. His subject matter ranges from people, young and old, male and female, to a wide variety of animals, both wild and domesticated. They vary in size, as well, ranging from four inches to seven feet in length. Bright works only from life, so he can gather his understanding of the model's personality. He always chooses a particular model who reflects his vision. The resulting sculptures reflect his model's individual nature and personality, bringing a sense of warm recognition to the observer. His understanding of the subject's physical and spiritual attributes allows Bright to achieve realistic sculpture with a sophisticated emotional clarity. Listings wanted.
