What is reality and what has the artist herself added? We present her first solo exhibition in Europe. Sheri Warshauer, born 1972, studied psychology in California and art in Chicago, where she received her Master's Degree MFA. So it happened that the analytical view was transferred to canvas. Warshauer paints houses of affluent Americans - her paintings are the "acrylic on canvas version" of glossy architectural magazines.

The signed and numbered dwarf sculpture is available from our gallery: 41 x 17 x 19 cm, in black, gold and dark grey, edition of 250 per color, price per sculpture 120€.
