Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Program Overview

Artist

Sheri Rush

My work is landscape based. I am passionate about the vastness of the natural world and our changing relationship with our environment. I am equally enthusiastic about an evolving painting process that establishes a painterly language through mark making and pushing paint while exploring scale.

My work represents a visceral experience in nature, while my source materials document a physical journey. I emphasize immersion and physical impact by using abstraction to deconstruct landscape imagery depicting a specific place to move the painting to a different realm.

I begin my process by taking cell phone pictures through the windows of moving cars, trains, buses, and/or from an immersive hiking view.

Each journey is a confrontation of the natural world through an emotional lens, facilitating my painting process.

For this commission, I will use as my source material a photo taken on a journey in nature by the patron and painted at a scale chosen by the patron.
