C.T. McClusky: Circus Surreal
McClusky was a circus clown who spent the winter seasons between the late 1940s and mid-1950s at a boarding house in Oakland, California. Working with found materials, he completed 53 mixed media collages on cardboard incorporating photographic cutouts, illustrations, as well as ephemera such as chocolate and candy wrappers. His vignettes from circus life are candid, nostalgic, and strikingly surreal.
