In collaboration with Philadelphia’s esteemed gallery, Dolan Maxwell, The Delaware Contemporary presents New Frequencies: Exploring Possibilities in Paint, a solo exhibition of the work of Cheryl Warrick. In her first solo museum exhibition, Warrick applies various methods of abstraction to create layered, mixed media works that weave personal and collective symbolism together. Through swatches of vibrant paint emerge lines that lead the viewer through recognizable imagery hidden amongst the interlocking marks on the surface. These concealed, often domestic, symbols invite viewers to piece together the tatters of an unfolding narrative while examining the role of their own individual associations to the color and form. Warrick firmly believes that art has the power to transform, change, and heal.
Born in 1956, in St. Albans, NY, Cheryl Warrick received a BFA in Painting at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA.
