Press Release

Allan Stone Projects is pleased to present Philip Sherrod: Street View on view from April 26 – June 9, 2018. Sherrod is known for his pulsating paintings of street and city scenes. In this body of work, he portrays New York as he experiences it, with excitable energy that seems to vibrate from within the painting. Buildings, storefronts and signs feature heavily in Sherrod’s paintings, underscoring the tenets of American urban culture. The humble settings of coffee shops, subway stations, Broadway marquees and even the circus are arranged in a cacophonous manner that transports the viewer to an earlier time. These works recall similar urban paintings by artists from the Ashcan school in the 19th Century. 

 

Philip Lawrence Sherrod was born in 1935. He received a BA in Painting in 1959 from the Oklahoma State University and attended the Art Students League in the early 1960s. He is the recipient of several awards including a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in 1982 and a Pollock-Krasner Grant in 1989. His works are in the public collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., the Museum of the City of New York, the Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, among others.
