Scott Sherk is a sculptor who often works with sound. His work has been widely shown, including exhibitions at the Katonah Museum of Art, the Allentown Museum of Art, and the Kim Foster Gallery in New York, New York. He has released a collection of field recordings from Iceland on Wandering Ear, and is included on the Framework 250 compilation. 23 Fountains of Beverly Hills is exhibited as a sound installation at Audio Visual Arts in New York, NY simultaneously with the launch of its release on Stasisfield.

Several years ago, Sherk began making field recordings of walks that he took through New York City, Los Angeles, and rural Pennsylvania. These walks became the basis for welded steel sculptures that described the actual pathway of the walk and were accompanied by field recordings and maps. Together, the visual work with the sound recordings created a three dimensional space of textures, coordinates, and location.

Recently he has become interested in the ambiences of spaces. He has created small portable spaces that contain their own, unique audio environment; and he has created sculptural objects that collect and amplify a space’s ambient sounds.

Sherk has collaborated on several large-scale installations with architect Joel Sanders and painter Pat Badt, respectively. These works have ranged from site-specific interior alterations of gallery spaces to built color environments using available landscapes.
A Professor of Art at Muhlenberg College, Scott Sherk has won several awards and grants including the Class of ’32 Chair and the Hoffman Research Fellowship. He teaches sculpture, drawing, and sound art. Along with Pat Badt he curates thethirdbarn.org.
