Chris Sherry has done figurative drawings for many years. His 2D work is executed in oils, acrylic, and mixed media; 3D work is in metals: foundry work and welding.
Chris' philosophy of art is it should be more than a picture: it should entice the viewer to participate, consider the possibilities. His figurative work he calls, figurescapes, are sections of the human form. Frequently, the images appear, at first, to be landscapes, which evolve into the figurative.
Prior to his profession as a painter, Chris was an Architect and a Faculty Member in the Interior Design Program of several local colleges. Presently, he teaches Beginning Painting and Drawing at The Johns Creek Art Center and The Quinlan Visual Arts Center. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Brenau University and Gwinnett Technical College.
