Sherry Davis
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Kensington



ARTIST STATEMENT: I’m drawn toward capturing the moment in time, my effort to make sense of rapid change. I make many glazed ceramic tile paintings because I enjoy the tactile quality of tile, the rhythm imposed on an artwork by dividing it into units, and the challenges of working with an unpredictible medium. These pieces tend to be heavy and fragile, but that's part of the fun. I also paint and draw, using tape for lines and divisions, and make multi-dimensional pieces using found and created objects. My art education and experience includes undergraduate studies at Brooklyn College, with additional courses at New York Academy of Art, School of Visual Arts, Hunter College, the Manhattan Graphics Center and Urban Glass, as well as past professional experience with computer-based production.
