TONY SCHERMAN "ANNIVERSARY" 2009
Evocative and sensual, this sublime Tony Scherman work on paper is an excellent example of his command of encaustic and his unique aesthetic.
Throughout his illustrious and dynamic career Tony Scherman (b. 1950) has create striking bodies of work that often portray the female form; sometimes characters from history or literature or contemporaries that delight or intrigue him.
Scherman's recent works, notably the series "Difficult Women" have depicted controversial, inspirational female figures. This work, which predates the series by a few years, is a paradigm of his practice in both form and content. Scherman is one of the few living artists working in encaustic (one of the most difficult medium to work in).
Tony Scherman’s work can be found in nearly every public collection in Canada, as well as many international museums including LACMA (Los Angeles) and Centre Pompidou (Paris)
(The McMichael Canadian Art Collection recently acquired four large Scherman paintings which are currently on display)
