Peter Robertson Gallery is pleased to present “in the we manner,” an exhibition of new painting and sculpture by Clay Ellis.

According to the artist:

“Reviewing work pulled out of storage is an unsettling experience. It is not my lingering on the reasons for the work being in storage that I find unnerving, but rather seeing it as an image of an earlier self. The potency of these encounters prompted this project which has occupied me for some time.

The exhibition “in the we manner” represents a mix of images, patterns, and forms derived from work, which for some reason, I have safeguarded. The pieces in the exhibition are perhaps more of a collaboration between present and past, than a remix.”
