It features 10 of Sherman’s most recent large-scale, 70-by-60-inch mixed media works on canvas; one expressive wall assemblage; four wall-mounted pieces; and a collection of 16 small collages on paper. The works date from 2013 through 2023, and many of them “have never been seen before publicly,” the gallery said.
“The paintings are bold, colorful, gestural, witty, and layered,” the gallery said. “Concrete character anchoring the plot exemplifies his new techniques with spray paint that adds a distinctive layer of dimension. … Playing with structure and material, melding paper, canvas, and paints, in unconventional and energetic ways, Sherman’s work underscores his ability to navigate between abstraction and figuration.”
