Sherry's photographs transform the familiar into the alien by saturating otherwise prosaic landscape scenes in deep acid hues to create brilliant monochrome compositions. Deserts, mountains, forests, etc., are rendered as if they were taken by something like the Mars rover or the Huygens probe on Saturn's moon Titan. The aim, according to Sherry, is to measure the deleterious impact on the environment by the effects of the anthropocene, the geological term for the era of human existence. Sherry has also done figure studies and stills lifes, and they're included in his latest show, which also introduces his use of black-and-white for the first time.
