Kelly Sherman, Artist
Boston-based artist Kelly Sherman—winner of the 2006 James and Audrey Foster Prize—addresses complex narratives about relationships, loss, and love using seemingly mundane analytical systems and structures such as diagrams, lists, and floor plans. Sherman discusses Gonzalez-Torres’s work on view in Figuring Color: Kathy Butterly, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roy McMakin, Sue Williams, providing insight on how artists imbue ordinary objects with emotion and sentiment.
Sherman received her bachelor of fine arts from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design and was awarded the Foster Prize from the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston in 2006. Her artworks reside in numerous private and public collections, including the ICA, and can be viewed at Center Street Studio and the Barbara Krakow Gallery, where she had her most recent solo show in 2009.
