High-gloss abstract expressionist painting of a large Africa-shaped form in red against black ground. Clough&rsquo;s unique way of applying paint to the canvas results in a highly articulated and densely textured surface. &ldquo;In place of the brush and other typical painter&#39;s tools, Clough uses an instrument he calls the &lsquo;Big Finger,&rsquo; a large balloon-like contraption that he invented to spread poured house enamel on masonite into broad gestural constellations.&rdquo; (Max Henry, &ldquo;charles clough,&rdquo; http://www.artnet.com/magazine_pre2000/reviews/henry/henry2-5-99.asp)
