Guy SHERWIN

Nationality: English

Born in 1948, Guy Sherwin studied painting at Chelsea School of Art in London. Inspired by films and expanded cinema from the London Filmmakers’ Co-op, he began making films and acquired laboratory skills while working there during the 1970s. His 16mm films are often highly concentrated in their form, but very diverse in terms of their imagery and approach. The Short Film Series (1975-ongoing) and live performance pieces such as Man with Mirror (1976-ongoing) involve human, animal and natural phenomena transcribed as filmic subjects, while his optical sound films and performances explore a wide variety of abstract audiovisual ideas.
