Art of the Day: New work by Chris Sheridan

Here’s a new piece by one of our favorite artists, “Transformation” by Chris Sheridan. We always love seeing his work in the studio!

Stories are the lifeblood of his paintings, which draw influence from the effects of magic and religion as cultural phenomena that shaped our early societies. They explore the disconnect between historical rituals and beliefs and the roles of figures in contemporary settings, and illustrate that the space between these two worlds is sometimes a vast chasm, while at other times it is merely skin deep.
