In their first exhibition in the Dallas area, Anderson and Sher present recent paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Through color, shape, and line, both artists create abstract works of art that explore their relationship between the self and the world around them. 

Ky Anderson narrates moments of an internal story. Utilizing a time-honed personal vocabulary, she translates these stories into her work. Colorful geometric shapes and lines fill the surface and afford viewers the opportunity to have their own conversations with these stories. 

Vicki Sher’s work references botanical shapes and lines. By layering vibrant lines and shapes, Sher creates works that intend to elicit a feeling of connection to something outside of circumstance. The variety of brightly colored shapes come together in melodic harmony, a glimpse into Sher’s poetic relationship between her work and the world around us. 

Included in the exhibition are several sculptures by Sher, her first venture into translating her two-dimensional vocabulary of shapes and color into three-dimensional works, while Anderson explores large scale painting, creating Shadow Tracking, her largest painting to date.
