For Sherry, painting begins with becoming one of the crowd.
Passing through the mass of people, meandering through a market of fresh produce and walking along the streets of a large city centre, she is drawn to the current moment of the everyday in which the urban crowd as a figure in itself is continually present.
Painting creates a third space, as a way of intertwining physical space and the space of painting in a reimagined world of the crowd experience. The paintings reveal the fragmentation of perception as the crowd steps between the physical and the painterly within the space of the canvas.
Sherry has her Master of Fine Arts, and a Bachelor of Arts from University of Waterloo, ON. As well, a Bachelor of Education from Wilfid Laurier University, Waterloo, ON.
