The artists in Shift share a desire to take traditional notions of landscape art and turn them on their head. By fusing elements of our modern consumer culture with classical notions of art and its presentation, these six artists take us on perceptual journeys into vivid worlds of their own design.  The landscapes they reveal exist in the mind as well as body, with varying relationships to the real world. In some cases political satire lies latent in the wacky worlds we encounter.  In other cases, the deceptively mundane shapes of the cityscape we call home inspire vibrant journeys.  Still other journeys result from explorations in music, or film or television cartoons.  Bright colors, big ideas and attention to detail make the work in Shift not just visually engaging, but makes it possible to offer us personal moments of reflection as to our own place in this seemingly crazy world.
