Claire Sherman

Claire Sherman, a painter, made her first lithographs, "Tree and Water" and "Underbrush", at Shark’s in May 2018. Her most recent prints are "Leaves and Vines" and "Waterfall" 2019

Her paintings and prints propel the viewer into a claustrophobic and unstable world through a perspective that shimmies between representation and abstraction. Her works reference idealistic visions of the sublime, while the medley of imagery presented eliminates the need to identify the actual places – these works do not seek to portray a specific view or experience. They address the ubiquity of imagery we associate with the genre of landscape, nullifying a sense of particularity.
