C Sherry Artist Bio:
Born in Szechuan, China. Sherry was a child of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, a period void of any advancement in science and culture and in which many families were disrupted. Both of her parents were scientists; her father was exiled to a remote farm. Not to be deterred, her mother took Sherry, only a few months old, and her five-year-old sister into hiding. To find ways to learn, Sherry began to draw at age 6, and upon noticing her talent, Sherry's mother began to search for a teacher for her daughter. Two years after the end of the Cultural Revolution, Sherry, now 12, passed the qualifying exam and entered the internationally famous Szechuan Fine Art Institute, becoming the youngest student in the school's history. After graduation in 1981, she was accepted at the prestigious Central Academy of Fine Arts and Crafts in Beijing. From 1981 to 1985, Sherry studied and absorbed the culture and art history of China and the western world from every source available. She learned from and was influenced by both historical and contemporary artists. Later she continued her studies in graduate school and taught classes at the school. She then had the opportunity to study in the United States at the University of South Carolina. This was a new experience for Sherry. While at the university, she embraced the imagination, freedom of expression and openness of American teaching. Her participation in school activities and art events brought her many rewards and citations. After completing her MA program, she came to San Diego in 1990 to pursue advanced studies at The United States International University. Since then, she has exhibited of her work in various locations in the U.S., Japan, and Mexico. Sherry's current works are focus on investigating the possibilities of shapes and colors. In her work, she combines the traditional painterly expression and the structure of geometric shapes to convey her passion and reason through color and structure.
