Sheryl David

Sheryl David is graduating with a BFA in Visual Arts from Texas Woman's University this Fall, where she pursued a dual concentration in photography and sculpture. Her work explores themes related to identity, personal experience, and memory by way of installation and self-portraiture. She is currently researching and applying to MFA programs.

Artist Statement 
Coalescence explores issues of identity, communication, relationships and intimacy. I am interested in investigating the transformation that results from overcoming perceptions of inadequacy within the self. Skin and gesture communicate a shared vulnerability and growth as the two figures become one throughout the series. The incorporation of hair, both in the images and sculptural installation act as a personal and universal symbol of identity.

The sculptural forms demonstrate the strength and malleability of hair, which reflect a sense of growth and transformation. This series was photographed with a Holga and instant film back allowing for soft focus and vignette to invite the viewer to witness the evolution from fear to connection within a relationship.
