Biography
Sherry Giryotas is informed and influenced by her memories of having lived on a variety of continents and the observations derived from immersion within diverse cultures. The contrast of chaos with order provides the structure of her work. Color, pattern and mark making dominates the canvas shifting through and over angles and shapes. These elements layer in the composition, from vague and elusive to blatant and bold, ultimately creating a visually complex interplay. Ms. Giryotas’ works are not specific to a location or moment; they are amalgamations of past and present relationships in a global landscape revealing gestures that meld together into a dynamic tapestry of images.
