Cherry Ehrlich writes, 'I like my work to have a playful quality. I make objects and assemblages from discarded materials and scraps; used paper, cardboard, wire, wood, found objects with a tactile or visual quality. I stick, scrape, soak in glue, draw under and on top of surfaces, push, tear and twist materials seeking resolution. More recently I have been working primarily in sketchbooks, and drawing using a variety of different types of paper. I hope the viewer finds some emotional connection or resonance in my work'
Cherry Ehrlich draws inspiration from artists like Eva Hesse, Louise Bourgeois and Philip Guston, as well as her former tutors at Kensington and Chelsea College and Camberwell (University of the Arts, London), where - having escaped a past life in public service - she was delighted to graduate with a BA Fine Art (Drawing) in 2007. At her Stewkley House studio in Perivale she continues to pursue her creative ambitions combining this with family caring responsibilities.
