X-paper Neoteric

Sherry Ying Ruden


September 3 – 26, 2020


Sherry’s use of traditional Chinese Xuan (rice) paper, though fragile, is surprisingly versatile. She continuously experiments with different methods – resulting in striking but subtle luminescent outcomes. Unlike Chinese painting with brush and ink, where the artwork is mounted afterwards, Sherry reverses the process by manipulating the material, creating shapes and colors based on the paper’s natural grain and texture while adding mixed media elements along the way. She calls it Zì-Rán 自然, In Chinese this means nature, or the flow of things, ensuring her subject matter will be fluid and unique each time.
