Sherrell does not seem to not limit himself to any one specific idea, material/medium or method. Working primarily as a sculptor, Sherrell works with wood, ceramic, fiberglass, metal, glass, stone, dog fur/hair, wax, books, found objects, textiles, and so much more. His processes are extensive, and he keeps his conceptual possibilities open for exploration.
Sherrell’s work evolves out of his wide interests in industry, nature, geometry, love, life, family, childhood, labor, sexuality, culture, dualities, and the everyday. Sherrell has always felt the necessity to continue to push his education and exploratory nature by having an open mind and working in unexplored territories. Beyond primarily working in a three dimensional realm, he is also a painter, video artist, and a computer artist.
After being awarded his MFA in 2014, Sherrell became represented by Now Contemporary Art Gallery. After 8 years of showing and four solo exhibitions in Miami, FL, Sherrell moved back to Illinois to continue his art career in his homeland of Oswego.
