Created by Cheryl Levin

After years of producing representational pictures dealing with themes of woman's identity and gender roles, Levin’s shift to abstraction was a direct result of the hardships she faced in her life and wanting a more free format for expression. Her new work reclaims her late husband’s discarded metal cut-offs as inspiration by incorporating them into the work and most recently has given voice to installation pieces.

Statement:

About six months after the traumatic death of my husband, I began using eulogy as a means of expression. Seeking to express myself in a more honest and minimalist structure I became influenced by Lee Krasner’s link to the Surrealist method of automatism. Like her, I am striving to connect with my work in a less formalistic manner and open to emotion. I’m thinking about how my marks can become un-aimed within a proposed shape or form. Trying to let my hand and brain release itself honestly and subconsciously to relax into the work – I want the pattern to reveal itself with automatism and repetition. My new work is an outgrowth – from the tumbling of the works produced after my husband’s death to the paring down of my method in preparation for larger works I’ve been formulating in my mind. I've been giving myself freedom to reveal deep meaning in a minimalist format that has resonated with my grieving state.
