Lumina Divina
Sherri Cobb

Lumina Divina is a solo presentation by the Brooklyn-based artist Sherri Cobb, featuring 6 works from 2019-2023.

The works in this series investigate the power dynamic between viewer and painting by combining vibrant contrasts of color and use of the negative space over large fields of raw canvas.

Inspired by notions of the unseen and the divine manifesting as a physical presence, each painting in this series represents the emergence of the metaphysical into the tangible world. The interplay of expressive strokes and negative spaces reveals to the viewer the mysteries of the universe, bridging the visible tangible grounded world and the invisible unseen spiritual that spans the universe.
