Sheri Simons

Sculpture

Sheri Simons is interested in sculpture as an instrument, broadly defined as something that aids in or causes an action or a reaction. Using wood, sound and movement, Sheri Simons’ sculptures can be listened to, bumped, and manipulated as they interfere and interact with their environment. Her graphical work follows a map-based format, often produced by collaborating with humans or machines. Sheri has shown work in solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe and Japan. Her sculptures have been commissioned for public spaces in California, Washington and Ohio. She has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Japan-US Friendship Commission, the California Arts Council, and the Center for Creative Innovation. She has been an artist in residence at Youkobo Art Space, Tokyo and ZK/U, Berlin. She is a professor of sculpture at California State University, Chico where she continues to teach AND learn.
