Artist Information for Cheryl Dineen Ferrin
I find few other subjects as fascinating as the individual. Personal identity is a central theme in my work. My quilted fabric portrayals draw on the complex interaction between subject and artist to capture the individual’s spirit. In the creative process, I strive to integrate prevailing attitudes on beauty, politics and self-image. Through the poignant interplay of gesture, vivid color, pattern, and a touch of voyeurism, I attempt to define the enigmatic in my subjects. I want to represent a perception of truth, the moment that will tell something of the subject, the viewer and the artist.
