Cheryl Warrick’s intuitive language of abstraction charts the exuberant inner worlds of both the artist and the viewer. Using acrylic and oil paint, watercolors, and pencil, the artist creates dreamy portals that nevertheless invite interpretation: a corner of a letter or number here, a seed and a sprout there. Her organic forms are enriched by her expertly crafted patterns—and in her later works—expansive painted and poured textures, as she eliminates negative space in favor of a maximalist experience.
Cheryl Warrick was born 1956, in St. Albans, New York. Warrick received a BFA in Painting at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston. In 1996 she received a Masters in Education from Lesley College, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work can be found in the collections of the Museum Of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art, Providence, RI, and the Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA, among others. This exhibition will feature works from various stages of Warrick’s career.
