Scherfen & Cao – “The Extent of Watercolor” Aug 8-29
Mike Scherfen is a trained graphic designer and worked as an advertising art director for 27 years. That training has given him unparallelled drafting skills – skills that form the foundation of his richly painted watercolors. Yan Cao (pronounced Yen Chao) comes at painting from the art history side and brings a more gestural, atmospheric sensibility to her work. We’ve paired these two artists to show the extent of watercolor – from Mike Scherfen’s highly rendered portraits and landscapes to the abstract washes and luminosity of Cao’s work. This beautiful and often unforgiving medium can provide artists with a wide range of effects not possible with other materials.
