About the Artist
Cheryl Rock completed her BFA at University of Windsor. Passionate about the power of diverse stories, she has a focus on reconnecting to oral tradition through her imagery. Her current work is with hand-cut, archival paper and mixed media. Central to her artistic practice, Cheryl is inspired by the desire to create dialogue with a diverse audience through commonalities in human experience.
Cheryl’s current series is Re-visioning Royalty. She uses her two-dimensional pieces to communicate notions of beauty, resilience, royalty, and tenacity. Re-presenting the stories of the Black diaspora, Cheryl’s two-dimensional cut paper pieces explore; Afrofuturism, Black identity, cultural hybridity and document the tenacity of the human spirit.
