About Gretchen Scherer
Gretchen Scherer currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
The drawings in this series serve as studies for her paintings and are a central part of her practice. They are based on collages composed of different images she finds in old books on the history of interiors. Rooms are linked together in curious ways; stairs, halls and doorways go on endlessly as if in a dream where one cannot find an exit. She seeks to allow spaces that have been lost to the past to be found anew in the perpetual expanse of painting.
She received a BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and graduated with an MFA from Hunter College. She is the recipient of a Graf Travel Grant to Berlin and has attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and The Vermont Studio Center Residency. Recent shows include Spoonbill Studio, Brooklyn, Silas Von Morisse Gallery, Brooklyn, C.Grimaldis Gallery, Baltimore, and Anna Marra Contemporanea, Rome.
