Sherry Trachtman  Fine Art

My 50 year artistic journey has led me through printmaking, graphic design, painting, and building 3D collage assemblages and sculptures.

My assemblage work is largely material driven.
Small objects available in multiples, especially cylindrical or round forms, attract me. I challenge myself to reinvent their meaning and function in as many ways as I can: narrative, political, humorous, symbolic, tactile, spatial and over all, visual. The development of designs and stories with each of these objects can sustain my interest for years.

My recent work is inspired by obsolete floppy disks and their cases. Their circle in a square format offer me both explorations of geometric design, and many ideas for narrative statements.
