Artist statement

Adrian Cherry is a self-taught artist with an interest in human anatomy, the macabre, and the surreal. Her work employs subtle distortions to the human form in an attempt to reconcile the conflict between our internal and external identities. Adrian has exhibited in several galleries across the US, including the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA and Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia, PA, as well as internationally with the Funarte Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal.

Project

In recent years, I’ve been seeing art as more of an internal dialogue between two halves of myself: the conscious one, stuck in the day-to-day thick of ‘living,’ and the subconscious one that seems to see the bigger picture being deliberately ignored by the conscious one. Over the past few years, my subject matter has been bleak, repetitive, and circling the drain creatively. I’m wondering if the toll of a 9-5 job (in finance), and the absence of a stimulating, creative environment have made their mark.

So, I’m venturing to uproot myself, out of my comfort zone, into an environment different from what I’m used to. I want to see what changes begin to occur in my work as a result of the change in scenery, the stimulation from new, like-minded individuals, and the access to a city rich in culture and history. I want to see if color comes back into my work, if substance and emotion seem to flow more easily. I’m basically looking for a creative enema.
