Daniel Cherrin

As an artist Cherrin explores experimental and impressionistic ways of viewing and understanding human needs.  In a culture obsessed with freedom that constantly endures sacrifices to achieve mobility, Cherrin’s work focuses on the dichotomy of fantasy and reality.   Juxtaposing documentary and created imagery to create new meanings, he explores sacrifice as a metaphor for the human condition.  People view images to affirm their “truths;” Cherrin challenges comfortable assumptions, presenting documentary as art and art as documentary.
