Sherry Giryotas: Seeking Place

October 9 - December 22, 2021

Sherry Giryotas’ paintings in Seeking Place were conceived over a period of about 10 years as she traveled between Texas and Michigan. The paintings serve as a reflection of her observances of the landscape, how it has evolved over time and how environmental factors have prompted such change. Her abstractions are landscapes of the mind, as she explains, “In the abstracted, internalized landscapes of my work, each painting helps to record the experience or sense of place and traces my passage through it. My observations of a constantly changing environment are referenced in the forms and nuances of light, a balancing of disorder with order through the complexity of pattern and mark making, drawing, and manipulating paint on the surface of the works make up the structure in my canvases.”
