A Semblance, Susan Eley Fine Art, New York, NY, January 2010
"This new body of paintings features large-scale female figures engaged in deliberate physical acts -- shooting, crouching or riding. Sourced from various photographs, these women have been reborn as modern day cousins of their former selves. They rule the abstracted landscapes in which Sherwood Pundyk sets them, yet retain a marvelous anonymity in their faceless, sometimes headless croppings. "This work allows me to pinpoint my ruminations and translate them with paint into a new cast of characters," she says. Sherwood Pundyk approaches a canvas with an assertive and expressive stroke deliberately leaving blank areas of the canvas, allowing a release valve for the heightened emotions the characters elicit." -- SEFA Press Release
