Sherrie Wolf: Memento
Russo Lee Gallery, Portland, OR - May 7 – 31
Sherrie Wolf is known for her realistic oil paintings, especially her art history–inflected still lifes. In this show of new oils on canvas, Wolf works on her biggest scale yet, the largest piece being 10 feet wide. She combines flowers and animals with inanimate objects, the mementos of the title. In a new stylistic twist, she plays on the effect of natural light from the Oregon coast.
