Artist Statement

Sheryl Daane Chesnut earned a Bachelor of Fine Art from UC Berkeley and UC Santa Barbara. After college she worked as a graphic and product designer for a number of years and has recently returned to painting. Her work is intuitive and focuses on shape and color. Details are unimportant and purposefully left unsaid. Most recently Sheryl has been concentrating on abstract figurative pieces. The figures integrate themselves as they seemingly float between the surface and the background. Her abstract landscape and non-representational work also play with color, shape and texture; Sheryl uses palette knifes, brushes and hand cut stencils to reduce images to the basic form in order to pull the viewer into each piece. Her artwork evokes a feeling of stillness and contemplation. Sheryl lives in San Luis Obispo on the central coast of California.
