Sherrie Wolf: Found
Russo Lee Gallery, Portland, OR - March 7 – 30
Sherrie Wolf is known for her sumptuous still lifes of living and man-made objects in the Flemish and Dutch tradition. For this series she swerves violently and beautifully, catching the bling of chrome, steel and silver on cutlery and jewelry at London flea markets. The works are acrylic paint on Yupo paper. She was inspired by a retreat during which she painted winter scenes in black and white. We get to enjoy the payoff when she immerses herself in just one aspect of material reality.
