Dana Sherwood

  • Artist

Dana Sherwood is a New York based artist whose work lies in the boundary-lines of the domestic and the wild, and interrogates the semiotics of desire and melancholia present at the intersection of the two worlds. The complexity of interpretation lies in the use of non-traditional materials and unconventional methodologies, which can sometimes involve organic materials and elaborate confectionery as well as interventions by animals. Since receiving a BFA from the University of Maine in 2004, Sherwood has exhibited her work in New York at Marianne Boesky Gallery (2012), as well as Mixed Greens Gallery (2012), Socrates Sculpture Park (2009), Flux Factory (2010), and Prospect 2 New Orleans (2011).
