Cheri Bohn Exhibit

Cheri Bohn | Artist in Fayetteville, Arkansas

About the Work

Cheri explains her intention for her work as, “My message to the world is to balance with nature, find the fusion between humans and nature, to work together to make a more beautiful world, and to see the world through nature's eyes.”
A root found and used in “Nice Kitty” inspired this show. All the roots used in these works were taken from the Arkansas wilderness. Their unique shape, contour, and texture suggest different animal forms. In “Nice Kitty” the curvature of the root suggested a tail and eventually becoming a crouching cat. The face is shaped and additional roots were added for the legs.
This piece’s hunting pose suggested a relationship with another of Bohn’s work “Cardinal”. Soon an ecosystem evolved as more animal works soon joined to create a food chain. Bohn creates animal relationships though the posing of these pieces and explores the irony of simultaneously being predator and prey.
