Wall Space Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of works by Sherry Czekus. In her oil paintings, Czekus uses minimal form and negative space to break down
her scenes of urban social environments into abstract spaces of colour. Her subjects are transformed into avenues of colour, simultaneously defining them from one another and flattening them into interlocking rhythms of movement. 

Each crowd depicted by Czekus draws on the sense of community and liveliness felt when engaging in social environments. Her use of bright, enticing colours, echo the bubbling laughter, footsteps, and chatter of group gatherings.

"Making my paintings begins with becoming one of the crowd as part of the everyday experience. On busy city sidewalks with my camera, I make my source images of the urban crowd and its figurative gestures, intersections and spaces between its members. Since the emergence of flaneurism and urban culture in 19th century Europe, the online social frontier has recently developed and has changed our visual perception of the physical crowd experience"
