July 30 – August 27, 2011
Songs for Infinite Starry Nightsis part of this summer’s group exhibition at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles,CA. Deedee Cheriel will exhibit new works with fantastic narratives where a beautiful & symbiotic relationship is formed between humans and animals or hybrids of the two.
Deedee’s strong list of characters paired together for unity and support, navigate the serene and benevolent backdrop of nature with bold marks and quirky personalities that dance across the dream-like background of drips and scratches. Working in acrylic and spray paint on wood, there is a simplicity and complexity that work as one while combining influences as diverse as Deedee’s Hindu upbringing and teenage years in the punk-rock scene, the visceral honesty with which she creates her work is a constant. “ Deedee's work is idiosyncratic in the most ideal way... it is a reflection of her unique personality.” - Shepard Fairey
Cheriel's work, always a meditation on personal experience and social interactions, now takes a profound step into the past. There is a focus on the difficult and awkward teen years as the artist revisits the horses she would draw in the margins of her teenage schoolwork. The inspirational movement of these characters across the psychological landscape; a growling bear’s incessant hunger, the danger of a tree catching fire, a model thin horse clinging to another - all work to profoundly convey the tribulations of one’s bumpy journey through time.
Deedeee Cherielbegan her art career creating record covers and T-shirts for the Oregon music scene in the early '90s. She played in several all-girl bands and co-created the semi-autobiographical film Down and Out with the Dolls. Her artwork has shown in galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, Portland, London, and Melbourne, Australia. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
