Ethan Sherman’s artwork examines the suggestive capabilities of material, color and form. His materials are engrained with a history indicative of their origin. Ethan takes them, arranges them, reflects and repeats. The work is the resolve of his gaze. It is rooted in optical experiences and confronts the scope of subjective and objective painting. Ethan melds the inner and outer eye by referencing elements of architecture through articulation and the material components of his work. Color and shape conform to his taste in order to question the significance of identity, authenticity and affect. Ethan was born in Philadelphia, and currently resides and works in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
