"To take my inner visions with my hands and create a work of art for you the viewer .... That is the ultimate in self expression."
Cher Pruys was born in Regina. Over the years she lived in many places including Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Fort Frances, settling into her present home in Devlin, on the banks of the Rainy River with her husband Mark, 4 dogs and 2 cats.
By age three, Cher was seldom found without a drawing tool in hand. She worked in pencil, charcoal and ink over the years, until, she picked up a paintbrush at the age of 35. Beginning with oil paints, she found her chosen mediums in acrylic, water color and gouache.
Although self taught, her dedication and talent has seen her work juried into 219 International exhibits, as well as exhibits in numerous non juried shows. She has won 257 awards for her work in the International Juried Exhibits.
Kara Fox - Ben
(oil on canvas)
12" x 16"
My work explores the relationship between the tyranny of ageing and multimedia experiences. With influences as diverse as Caravaggio and Frida Kahlo, new combinations are generated from both explicit and implicit discourse.
Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of meaning. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes finessed into a carnival of lust, leaving only a sense of failing and the prospect of a new beginning.
As wavering derivatives become transformed through diligent and academic practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the inaccuracies of our existence.
