Monumental Oil ’Rock Wall' noted artist Claire Sherman- Kavi Gupta Gallery


This Painting will Create an Extraordinary Feeling Into Western America-a Trompe L'Oeil effect of walking into a Rock Canyon. It was place at the top of a Staircase and gave an Immediate Grandeur to the room. Extraordinary alluring Monumental painting - 108 in. x 84 in. by Noted, Highly Sought After Artist Claire Sherman, which creates an exhilarating feeling in any decor!! size-108 in. w x 84 in. h. Claire was featured in the New Yorker magazine Oct 2016. Claire Sherman produces large-scale paintings and jewel-like drawings of natural landscapes and their details—a clump of dirt, blades of grass—that appear both representative and off-kilter. As she describes: “It is less about representing a specific place, and more about how paint can create an experience of a space that is both alluring and terrifying. My interest is in a space that falls apart as it begins to congeal and questions our relationship to the conventions of landscape.” Though she has recently started visiting the places she paints, most of her work is based on images she finds in kitschy nature books. Though Sherman convincingly captures the saturated colors and Fine textures of nature, her works are anything but straightforward. She paints loosely and frames her views awkwardly, building ambivalence and abstraction into her alluringly strange visions of nature. About the Artist: Claire Sherman received her B.A. from The University of Pennsylvania and her M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has completed residencies at the Terra Foundation for American Art, the MacDowell Colony, the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation, Yaddo, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace program. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago; Houldsworth Gallery, London; Aurobora, San Francisco; and Hof and Huyser Gallery, Amsterdam. Recent group exhibitions include the Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; Gallery Seomi, Seoul, The New Gallery, Austria; and the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, NY. Sherman's work is included in numerous collections including the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, the UBS collections in London and the United States, and the Margulies Collection in Miami. Sherman is an Assistant Professor at Drew University.
