SHERYL KEEN

SherylK.jpg

Sheryl A. Keen is an artist and author. It has been this way since she could first hold pencil and paper. She is interested in bringing contemplative and interpretive works to the viewers’ experience.

Residing and working in Toronto, Sheryl is a self-taught artist who works mainly with acrylics mixed media. She uses a technique that stacks modelling paste to create a 3 D effect. Her works have been included in solo and group exhibitions. She has been featured at the Pickering Canadian Caribbean Cultural Association Dinner, at CIBC Black History Month Events, at several of Toronto Public Library and at private showings.

Her most recent exhibitions include her solo exhibition at Station Gallery, solo exhibition at A Different Booklist, and ongoing exhibition at Knowledge bookstore. Other exhibitions include group exhibition at the Feminist Arts Conference 2017 at OCAD, Station Gallery Group Exhibition 2017, the Queen Street Art Crawl, Kingston Road Art Walk, Queen/Saulter Public Library, Richview Library, Pape & Danforth Library and the Political Candy Group show with the Pendulum Project. She has also participated in the “Together we Rise” group exhibitions at the Areej Gallery and at Artists to Artists Foundation in 2016.

Sheryl explores themes that include the examination and exploration of self. It asks a couple of questions, who am I, what is my place in the world, what is my best self and how do I get to that best self that I see in my mind’s eye. As humans, we are always evolving and striving to get to a better place. And that better place usually comes with some amount of self reflection and examination. And it’s that process and journey that is fascinating, how do we change to get to a better self?
