 Matthew Gets Photographed. Sherri Silverman. Pastels and pencil on paper. 2006. 17.5" x 29.5".   "The playful, geometric  Matthew  series began in 1987. Early in 1988, a friend's six year old was in my studio with me. I gave him paper and crayons, but he finished six paintings in a few minutes, picked up one of my pastel sticks, and started coloring in on my painting with me. I decided to go with the flow and be calm. I ended up keeping what he did and named the series after him."

 BMoCA 5: If you're not having fun, what's the point? Sherri Silverman. Pastels and pencil on paper. 2001. 5" x 5".    BMoCA  series: "Two weeks after September 11, 2001, I was Artist in Residence at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. After 911, I could only think of creating reflections of what is really important in this life: beauty, subtle levels of the creative process, love and joy. BMoCA was noisy and active with deliveries, museum visitors asking me questions about my art, and staff hanging a show in other rooms. Working much smaller than usual allowed me to maintain composition and focus on development of these little pastel painting icons."
