Living in a 3-D Canvas
Here’s the home of the artist Sean Scherer, who lived in downtown Manhattan and witnessed 9/11. Traumatized by the experience, he couldn’t paint for a few years. He moved to upstate New York, where his home became his canvas.  Throughout, Scherer pairs two-dimensional artworks with tableaux of his own design. Here he displays various anatomical models of human hearts in front of an Andres Serrano photograph and a salvaged Ionic column. On the table below the skull still life you can see Scherer’s artwork.
