Trees, 20 x 15”, Xerox Transfer and Collage on Paper, 2012

The first work is a large painting from 2012:  Tree.  The second piece is from a recent project I completed at Aurobora in San Francisco.  It is a combination of collage and Xerox transfer on paper.  I am working on a series of large tree paintings in which the Redwood fills the entire surface, becoming an abstraction.  Alternatively, the Xerox transfer is a new medium for me that I see as an extension of how I think about the relationship between image, abstraction, process, and material in painting.  I hope to make a lot more of these.  I think of them as a form of drawing as I investigate this new series of work.  -Claire Sherman, 2013
