Cheri Smith’s practice is a personal attempt to access and understand nature, through drawings made with pencil and pastel, and paintings in oil, egg and glue. At the core of this is an investigation into the relationship between looking and knowing, and the history of how humans have looked at the natural world. She is drawn to the tangled, interconnected, mysterious and ultimately unknowable; it is this nature of things which her works aim to illuminate.
Cheri was born in 1991 in Essex. She studied at Norwich University of the Arts, graduating in 2013, and at the Royal Drawing School, graduating in 2018.
