Dolby Chadwick Gallery is thrilled to announce Just One Look, an exhibition of new work by Sherié Franssen. Franssen’s highly charged, vibrantly colored paintings feature sweeping, sensual gestures that dance across the canvas, forming woven layers of unfurling energy.
Over the past several years, the human figure has emerged slowly, piecemeal, out of Franssen’s dynamic abstract environments. Just One Look marks another step in this evolution, with the figure asserting itself more visibly and directly. Also driving these paintings is a newfound sense of urgency—a yearning to capture ephemeral visions and fleeting truths “before time slips away.” She identifies this urgency as arising in reaction to the upending of our lives over the past two years, a through-line that has entered into other artists’ practices as well. In addition to signaling the contingencies of time and life’s finitude, the human body challenges Franssen as an artist by pushing her practice to new technical heights.
