“I work intuitively, making what I want to see. I start each new surface, paper or canvas, with color or line, and proceed in dialogue with the material. Often it seems the drawing knows what it wants to be.” — Vicki Sher
An artist who has been exhibiting her artwork throughout the United States for over two decades, Vicki Sher (b. 1966) examines connections to line, color, and shape in her work grounded in personal narratives, ideas about nature, human behavior, and relationships. She has participated in numerous art fairs, including NADA, PULSE, and Scope in New York and Miami. Most recently, her solo show, Always Bring Flowers, at frosch&portmann Gallery, included video as a moving element in drawings and paintings that celebrated domestic life and quotidian pleasures. A previous solo show, Yes/No, used a personal narrative, her grandmother’s stroke, as a catalyst for art with a reduced vocabulary.Read Full Bio
