Sherié Franssen's tumultuous paintings transmute lurid color and intimate forms into cinematic orchestrations. Her all-over compositions defy and dissolve boundaries between figure and ground; instead cultivating impassioned scenes that are felt before they are read. Initially captivated at a young age by the Baroque images printed on holy cards, Franssen continues to reference creative output from that era but filtered though gutsy abstractions and blurred, near-psychic visions.
