Sherri Belassen: Drawing Lines

Sherri Belassen, Drawing Lines, Oil on Canvas, 52 x 72 inches


Drawing Lines delivers the movement and playfulness we love so much from Sherri Belassen. Belassen fills her compositions with vibrancy and texture, achieved by building and subtracting layers with her brush and palette knife. She expertly balances these elements with a unique sense of negative space.

Belassen recalls, “Flying in small planes at a young age with my father helped develop a sort of aerial view, a spatial awareness and balance while focusing on the horizon. These strong memories resurface in a sense of openness in my work.” This is evident in the details of Drawing Lines, from the way the sections of colors are blocked to the small shapes strewn throughout the piece. These touches mimic a view from above.
