Sheri Klein contacted us recently, and sent us these kind of great drawings. We asked her to tell us a bit more about them, and herself. Of the drawings, she says they’re mostly unpublished so far, but she’s thinking about self-publishing them as a collections when she has a few more.
She combines drawing and data gathered from multiple online databases and sources to explore intersecting issues, such as gender, class, health, identity, and femininity. The juxtaposition of data allows the reader to make their own interpretations about the often conflicting messages about and status of women in contemporary society. The “What Women….” Series is a work-in-progress that embraces current events as well as ongoing struggles and issues of contemporary women across the globe. Sheri Klein has a BFA and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is an artist, researcher, and art educator and President Elect for the Women’s Caucus of the National Art Education Association. She lives near the Twin Cities.
