Cheri Smith

Biography

Cheri Smith’s paintings are inspired by the eccentricity of the natural world and of how animals are classified in natural history catalogues. Often painting onto old book covers, her paintings present animals as both curious specimens and imaginative motifs with which she interacts in fantastical scenes. Animals become dreamlike companions – ghostlike dogs an inflatable crocodile – cut free of their formal classification to become guides in an imaginary otherworld.
