David Sherry was awarded a funded residency during Cove Park’s 2018 summer programme. This allowed him to research and develop current projects, specifically a new series of drawings, paintings and a video work which were shown at his recent solo exhibition ‘Parallax Something Equals Everything‘ at Patricia Fleming Projects, Glasgow. He is now working towards two performances at the Independent Art Fair in Brussels in November with Patricia Fleming Projects and will be showing a film in January at Transition Two, London. David is also developing new work for a solo exhibition with Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast, in October next year.
The artist returned to Cove Park in October 2018 as part of our Saturday Studios programme, devising and leading a very successful and popular workshop on wearable sculpture for primary school age children.
David Sherry (born Northern Ireland, 1974) lives and works in Glasgow. Graduating from the University of Ulster at Belfast in 1997, he completed his MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2000.
