'Touched by The Hand of God'

June 21, 2013

David Benjamin Sherry's work varies from landscape and studio photography, to collage and sculpture, often with a heavy focus on color. Working with analogue film and printing techniques "the use of anachronistic, primitive methods reflects a concern with craft, introducing the hand of the artist into a medium most commonly associated with mechanical reproduction." Sherry's work often merges human and natural subjects, creating images in which landscapes take on anthropomorphic qualities and the humans in them become part of the landscape, as opposed to inhabitants. His most recent show Astral Desert, at Salon 94 gallery in New York City explores the topography of the desert and American West through multiple processes pushing photography to a "chromatic extreme."
