Kathleen McSherry has a longstanding appreciation for the abandoned and obscure. Her approach to sculpture can be described as archaeological. Her work references multiple strata of American culture, refusing to be tethered to a singular aesthetic. Her choice of composition and media are benefited through their familiarity, giving the chimeric aspects of her sculpture a sense of uncanniness, yet wonder. This observational quality in McSherry’s work is self-evident; her media is as much the refuse of modern culture as it is the thematic components of our everyday lives.
