Vicki Sher

Vicki Sher’s paintings use shapes that imply botanical forms, landscape, and nature but come from a different reality. Born out of an interest in everyday life, her artwork distills images into basic forms. As shapes evolve into abstract geometries, they become building blocks for a new visual language. The layering of forms deepens the space which supports Sher’s interest in depicting multi-layered experiences within a pared-down composition. Vicki Sher received her BFA from Cornell University and MFA from the University of Iowa. Her work has been exhibited at public institutions including the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, PA and The Phillips Museum at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. She is the recipient of a MacDowell Colony Fellowship award and a VCCA Fellowship award. Sher has exhibited her work in numerous art fairs, including VOLTA Basel, NADA and PULSE. She is represented by Frosch & Portmann Gallery in New York, NY, George Gallery in Charleston, SC, and Tayloe Piggot Gallery in Jackson Hole, WY, among others.
