TONY SCHER­MAN

DINE and Destinations - - THE ARTISTS -

Cana­dian artist Tony Scher­man, born in Toronto in 1950, re­ceived an M.A. from the Royal Col­lege of Art in Lon­don, Eng­land, in 1974. Since then he has had his work in var­i­ous cor­po­rate and pub­lic col­lec­tions and has ex­hib­ited in solo and group ex­hi­bi­tions in North Amer­ica, Eu­rope and China. He has also par­tic­i­pated as a vis­it­ing critic and lec­turer at uni­ver­si­ties, art col­leges and art gal­leries in North Amer­ica and Eu­rope.

His en­caus­tic method of paint­ing com­bines pig­ment and wax to cre­ate works with mul­ti­ple lay­ers. The drip­ping and heav­ily built up wax sur­face gives the work a vis­ceral edge and a re­mark­able sense of depth. Tony is con­sid­ered the lead­ing ex­po­nent of the en­caus­tic medium.
