Joshua Cherry, Sedona Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement Joshua Cherry has been creating unique abstract impressionism since he was a kid. In the beginning, he preferred drawing black and whites. He was expressing how the world looked throughout his childhood, however most people saw his art as strange and dark. Josh would draw because he wasn't able to speak very well and he was frustrated and needed an outlet. Josh would make sense of and express a collage of images of how he sees the world around him. When Josh was in his early twenties he was sent to the hospital after having a near death experience. Josh was meet with beings of light and saw a totally different existence. Josh's experience opened his eyes to what he had been drawing since a little boy. Josh believes that event has made his art come full circle making him want to help people all around the world. Josh looks at this life as a special gift to create a better today for tomorrow.
