Artist: Dagan Sherman

My recent works focus on figurative elements. I hope to convey a specific mood throughout each piece with development of visual metaphors and manipulation of media. I reinvent the situations that we, as a society, are put into and how we treat each other because of the way our world is today. The figures in my work are usually nude and somewhat stylized, as I display the human form in all of its beauty and vulnerability. I combine surrealistic elements with representational qualities, establishing my own rendition of an abstract world. The strength of my work reflects a penchant for mixed media, incorporating printmaking, drawing, and painting techniques. Because of this, I explore interests in multiple mediums while maintaining respect for traditional printmaking processes.
