Raised on a diet of horror movies and freaky local folktales, this Fort Lauderdale-based artist grew up seeing monsters under her bed. The North Carolina native now inserts these creature discomforts into her art: sculpture, performance art, stop-motion Claymation. These works, at times unsettling, surreal and playful, are designed “to confront people with the unknown, the ambiguous tension where you’re anticipating something strange is going to happen,” Clay said in a recent SouthFlorida.com interview.
