Artist Statement

Artists Clyde Petersen and Ellen Forney personify their own journeys as individuals who have overcome personal hardship in this exhibition curated by Liz Patterson and Trevor Doak. Through stop-motion film, and with the help of Chris Looney, Petersen’s life story is told from the perspective of his twelve-year-old self. At Shift, nearly four hundred hand-made puppets will wave their hands in euphoria, a concert scene that Petersen experienced while on a cross-country journey with his schizophrenic mother. In keeping with this immersive positivity, pages from Forney’s published graphic novels will also overtake the walls of Shift. Selections from Forney’s Marbles:  Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me and her newly released Rock Steady will be on view
