State of Mind: Remixing & Deconstructing Beliefs

Opening reception: Thursday, February 1 at 7PM
Sheryl A. Keen is a writer and artist whose materially-rich visual art promotes the advancement of Black identity and a searching quest for personal expression. Keen’s vibrant, highly-modelled surfaces explore themes of strength and resilience; the beauty and grace of women.
Merging figurative and abstract elements, the artist states: “Since much of my art is 3D, I use colour to make the art come alive. The work of art seems to become a living, breathing thing—art personified.”
Keen earned a Bachelor’s degree in History with a minor in English Literature from the University of the West Indies.
