Sheri R. Klein is a Midwest (USA) based artist who has exhibited her works in galleries, museums and universities nationally and internationally. She began her formal studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she studied with a wide range of artist-teachers including the Chicago Imagist painters. Her oeuvre of works include paintings, mixed media journals, and other works on paper. Drawing upon references to the world of the hidden and fragmented, as in the cellular/molecular, the galactic/celestial, the world of geological strata and the archeological, recent works focus on biomorphic images created through a process of layering paint and medium, line and pattern. The forms, individually and collectively, explore the themes of insides and centers as well as outsides, boundaries and the in-between and liminal spaces between forms. The curation of one's images becomes essential upon completion of the research and the creation of multiple works. Individual small paintings are arranged, and intended for constellations, or collective groupings, that call attention to the infinite possibility and variation of fragments and new meanings and associations that can occur when juxtaposed and reoriented.
