Sherrie Wolf: Musuem
Eric Franklin: Transmit/Absorb/Reflect
Now – November 1, 2014

In her latest exhibition, Museum – a place where works of art and objects of lasting interest are displayed, Portland based painter Sherrie Wolf continues to experiment with her practice of juxtaposing still life painting with a variety of references from art history. Well known for her exacting realism, Wolf continues in the still life tradition using a diverse array of fruits, flowers, bowls, and vases as anchors for her paintings. The numbers and variety of additional objets d’art in her compositions are increasing, and the range of patterns provided by drapery combine to make paintings that are kaleidoscopic in their visual impact. Art historical references remain, but they are frequently integrated into the image as postcards or book illustrations. The dense layering and juxtaposition of objects and art historical imagery is an illustration of the museum-like collection of source material Wolf has acquired throughout her career. She continues to find fascination in these materials as they interact within and almost overflow from her canvases.
