Cheri Christensen & Tim Cherry: Animal House
Painter Cheri Christensen concentrates on seeing and conveying the effects of color and light on form, and admires the Russian Impressionists for painting about “color and everyday life.” Her fresh, spontaneous style intimately conveys her love of farm life and animals, by which she has always been surrounded.
Sculptor Tim Cherry states, “My sculptural approach involves the use of simplified shapes and lines to produce curvilinear forms. I enjoy orchestrating these elements into sculpture that is rhythmical, flowing and inviting to the touch. Capturing the grace and elegance of my subjects is a primary goal.” It was from that approach that Tim’s unique style resulted: an expression of each animal’s personality, movement and behavior. The animals pulse with life and innately celebrate life.
