Alonzo Clemens suffered a head injury at the age of six. He has an IQ of 40. Five percent of Americans IQs are under 75. An IQ less than 50 puts one in the category severely retarded needing assistance in nearly all aspects of daily life. Alonzo is also an artistic genius and to witness him mold a glob of clay into a tiny animal he may have only seen once is truly a marvel to behold. His fingers work furiously pulling peaks and leaving seemingly random divots, till you realize what you thought were accidental gestures are the very deliberate actions of brilliant fingers that need only move clay once to put it were it needs to be. A tiny ox forms from a lump of earth in front of your eyes. When I was a kid hearing bible stories this is how I imagined God formed animals with his hands in the mud of the earth. He is one of the few living artists whose work I would like to own. His sculptures sell for thousands and his studio is in Aspen CO.
