Aiming to reveal and exploit rather than disguise, artist Sherrie Wolf is poised to showcase her latest oils at Laura Russo Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
Visitors to Laura Russo Gallery in Portland, Oregon, this month will be treated to a captivating display of the magic of illusion. “Stage” is a solo exhibition opening May 5 that will feature the latest oils from painter Sherrie Wolf, who “aims to both exploit and to reveal, rather than disguise, the fact that art is artifice” she says. “My process is like designing a theatrical production in which I set the stage, choose the characters, and determine their gestures. I am drawn to complex layers of activity, and to both compositional and conceptual interactions.”
