Cheryl Ann Thomas: Artist Profile
Our exhibition of new work by Cheryl Ann Thomas opened today, and so far the response has been very enthusiastic. Her recent works are elegant and softly dramatic, in a new and subtle color palette. Visitors are often mystified by Thomas’s artwork, mistaking the coils of porcelain clay for fabric. We’ve been playing this video profile, created by Jürgen Gottschalk of MediaM8, to help people understand her process.
This video goes beyond simply informing the viewer about how these works are built – it really captures how Cheryl Ann Thomas conceives of her artwork. Her openness to chance and the possibility of loss are intrinsic to these pieces, and demonstrate her commitment to process rather than outcome.
