Clayton Keyes is an Oklahoma-based sculptor. He received his AA in Art from Northern Oklahoma College, his BFA from the University of Oklahoma, Norman and his MFA from the University of Oklahoma, Tulsa.
Keyes’ work stems from a lifetime of exploring the human form. The figure provides mos to his inspiration and his fascination with the psyche within the human form. His sculptures depict his enchantment with and examination of human nature and the inner conflict. His art is the result of an urge to impress upon the viewer the experiences of the oppressed and to draw from them empathy for such.
Keyes has exhibited work in numerous galleries throughout the United States including Santa Fe Clay in New Mexico and The Clay Studio in Pennsylvania.
