About the Art

What the artist saysMy gestural practice produces work clearly influenced by nature and the world around us.  I endeavor to explore the spirit of the colors and movements in an effort to both echo nature and spark our imagination.
Why we like itSherman has a unique ability to depict the tactile world around us with vivid colors and gestural brush strokes.  Her work is a contemporary nod to abstract expressionism.
Where we hang itThese larger works are impactful and thought provoking: the perfect focal point for any room, large or small. This vibrant piece is sure to brighten even the darkest corner.

About the Artist

E.H. Sherman
Ellen Sherman is an abstract painter living and working in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ellen’s mixed media work is heavily influenced by her time living in Miami (2008-2018) where she observed and documented the ebb and flow of the tides and the power of the water of the Atlantic. Her fascination with the movement of the ocean during this time carries into her current work, as the random nature of the water flow is carefully preserved. Her process marries the chaos of pools of water and color, with planned contour and gesture lines referencing her subject; which is usually rooted in a pattern, texture or movement found in nature.
Ellen received her BFA in Studio Art from Michigan State University in 2008 and has also studied at Arizona State University.

“Using colors and movement found in my environment, it is my intent to explore and extrapolate on the spirit of these, creating work that echoes their being but invites imagination as well.”
