Clottey creates work based on everyday items but is also a photographer, performance artist, installation artist and sculptor. The artist calls his own work "Afrogallonism", an examination of material culture via kuffuor gallon jugs. The pieces here are made of the jugs, jute sacks, car tires and bits of wood (among other items). The jugs are symbolic of the recycling, the reusing in the culture of the West African nation.
From a distance they seem to be made of some natural material or even woven fabric. It is only when you get close that you see the real materials. They are, even without context, fascinating pieces to look at . They beg you to ask questions.
