Sherri Mignonne: Defining the very essence of Aspen on Canvas
The Aspen Art Gallery has had hundreds of Artists share their phenomenal work, often depicting Aspens. Sherri Mignonne is the ONE. Here is why...
Not only painting nature since she was a little girl, Sherri has taken photos all over the planet, exploring everything photography has to offer..... including celebrities, performance horse photography, and fine art photography. When she re-commited to painting she focused on her most favored nature in the the world. Aspen, Colorado. What is portrayed on canvas is an immaculate balance between reality and fantasy. It is an expression of her greatest appreciations of what it actually feels like to experience the nature in Aspen. The connectivity, the seasonality and the harmony... In fact, every single artwork is named after real places in Colorado. She doesn't replicate places on canvas, she simply delivers the essence.
THE PLAY OF LIGHT
Light is everything in nature, the darkest of shadows flickering beyond a campfire, the heat of the midday glaze or the lowest angle of sunshine just before it dips below the horizon. The mixture of materials Sherri Mignonne has innovated is her delivery of these moments. (read more)
Like experiencing nature itself...there is nothing like standing in the majesty of her work.
Sherri's depictions strike a palatable balance between the fantastical and geometry while still offering the elevated feelings of nature... its with a little less complication, paired with a slash of the fantastical.
The ultimate contemporary artistic statement.
