Catalogue Note

"I'd been going through a struggle, particularly after 9/11...I still wanted the work to be the same kind of mixture - intense, with a nasty side or an ugly side, but also with a real pathos about the characters - and [clowns] have an underlying sense of sadness while they're trying to cheer people up. Clowns are sad, but they're also psychotically, hysterically happy. ...I like that balance."

the artist cited in: Betsy Berne, "Studio: Cindy Sherman" in: Tate Magazine, No. 5, May-June 2003
