View Sherry Sacks's Gallery
Sherry Beth Sacks is a feminist artist living and working outside of New York City. Working in both painting and sculpture, Sacks' art is firmly grounded in the punk aesthetic and strives for autonomy in not only form but also process. She rejects any formal boundaries or specific patterned authorship in her work by pushing techniques, mediums and forms; the primacy of the work of the art as object rather than product is thus reestablished. It is in this tension between author and object that her works resides.
Sacks is the founder of Blue Scarf Collective; a neo-suburban art group.
Sherry received her BA from University of Maryland and holds a Masters in Education from George Washington University. Prior to becoming a painter she played drums in various bands in both Washington DC and Brooklyn NY.
