About The Artist:
Cherish is a recent graduate from the University of Gloucestershire, and has gone on to exhibit across London and starting to exhibit abroad. During her studies she delved into the subject of vulnerability, mainly focusing on the mental mind set of people. She was inspired by events that happen when she was young; when she was 13 her mother tried to commit suicide, leaving Cherish with unanswered questions. Why do people get to state where people want to die? Do they think of how affects others? Can people help them? Can these feelings change? Why can't we just say that we need help? Cherish tries and answers these questions within her artwork.
As a society we put on a performance, we lie and say everything is ok when it's not. Cherish is guilty of this herself, however her inner thoughts is shown in her work, making herself exposed for you to see and indulge.
