Cher Odum : Featured Artist

Art Prints



Cher Odum is an artist I have long admired. In her own words Cher says of her artistic journey, "When I began developing my signature style with the big feet, small head, overall distorted body image, and the wild different colored hair in some, I was thinking about women in general. Being a woman myself, and working with women, and especially adolescents, I've observed how we all seem to hate what we see in the mirror. Our feet are too big, our bums are outrageously huge, we feel clumsy and awkward (and we are even more so during adolescents), and think so 'small' of ourselves; hence the small head.

Note the body proportions of the images and you will see what Cher shows us in her unique paintings. The women are depicted from thoughts of how she sees herself, not how she is seen by others, but how she sees and perceives her own body image. I feel this is very relevant in today's society where anorexia and such likes are almost the only acceptable forms of beauty young women are taught ARE beautiful and more importantly - acceptable.

Cher goes on to say, "However, we are all beautiful beings, if only we could really see our being-ness. We are wiser than we know. That's where the pearls come from (pearls of wisdom) and the music I've portrayed in some of the paintings. The eyes have a sense of knowing, which comes from being bright beings, and our many different lifetimes here on earth, and in between. In the paintings where the figure is painted, in parts, outside the border, I am showing a breaking out of the box people try to put us in - - and how our being-ness is too large to be contained."

Out of the box - the box that not only we, but society places we as women until the magic starts and a woman breaks free. She frees not only herself, but other women she may come into contact with. We women are very social creatures and whomever thinks one woman cannot make a difference is, in my humble opinion, very wrong.

Cher Odum adds, "the paintings where the woman is running, leaping, dancing above the mountains and trees show a free spirit - - larger than life - and anything is possible if only we believe it." Read that again ladies!

Cher certainly knows her color theory and explains her use of it, "The colors that I use most in my work represent success (yellow); life, energy, courage (red); healing, abundance, growth (green); strength, truth (blue); and purity and light (white)."

Ok, I admit, I have found one of my favorites again! There is something in this work that resonates with me on a deep level. I am unsure as to why, but that's the beauty of art and the artists around us who can create works that pull positive emotions from their viewers. Cher Odum is certainly one of those artists - her entire portfolio has a decidedly positive effect on my thinking, and seeing how others respond to her art makes me think that I am not alone in the way I feel.

Cher also paints abstract. To complete this feature I am leaving off with an abstract painting. I find this very interesting because for me, I still see feminine curves. I am well aware that abstract is seen differently by everyone, but for me, the feminine form comes through even in complete abstract form without any component that could be considered representational.

Shattered Lily Abstract Grunge Art Print

Shattered Lily Abstract Grunge
Flowers always fascinate me, but there are so many images of straight flowers looking absolutely beautiful that I love creating different and more emotive images - emotive in a sense that they come from within me and whatever you see as a viewer is the beauty of abstract.

Yellow Red and Green Highly Modern Colors which would brighten and enliven any room. A sense of movement within the artwork gives a tender touch of elegance and the impasto paint a very contemporary appearance. A lily is imaginatively shattered.
