“As an artist I am interested in the boundaries created by form, shape, and color. This subject matter interests me because these boundaries are a metaphor for the different types of boundaries we encounter in our everyday existence.”

Oregon-based artist Janet Sherman, whose work we discovered earlier this month at the New York Affordable Art Fair, taught herself origami at a young age, discovering early the expressive possibilities inherent within paper. And it is paper that gives her mixed-media geometric compositions their visual and textural power. Painted paper is fashioned into little boxes, arranged and adhered in grid form, and then drenched in epoxy resin. The resulting compositions are shimmering, vibrant reliefs, meticulous, orderly and beyond beautiful.


Says Sherman, “With these works I want to make the viewer feel an emotional response to the contrasting color fields and to provoke the viewer to think about how the square boxes resemble things in everyday life, like our homes, city blocks, or even the windows we look out of to view the world around us.” We’re feeling it.
