Sheryl Southwick's joyful torn paper collages shimmer with light and color. This show, titled Local Color Reimagined, offers a fascinating look into her artistic process. Southwick has chosen to present her collages along with the landscape paintings that inspired them. In these loosely brushed paintings, she captures the trees and water, farm fields, and sunrises that formed the basis for the collages. Although the paintings brim with color and energy, her collages are even more vibrant. Made from tiny strips of colored paper whose torn edges suggest glints of light, the collages dance with surprising textures and hues.
