Trinidadian born artist Romy Scheroder received her BFA in Ceramics from Florida Atlantic University and her MFA in Sculpture from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. As a sculptor and conceptual crafter her studio practice uses the chair as a stand in for the human form, transforming their utility through a complex process of cutting, altering, sanding and reassembling, she asserts features in a way that ultimately upset or distort the general function of the chair.  The underlying  themes that drive her practice comes from her own notions of Otherness, issues of domesticity and various realms that make up the human condition.  In 2011 Ms. Scheroder among 9 other artists was awarded an artists public art commission from the Bronx Museum and the Rockefeller Foundation to create public art on Randall’s Island, NY.  In the summer of 2012 she nstalled her second public work on Governor’s Island with Figment Project, NY.  Expect to see a new body of work to be created during her residency on Governors Island, awarded by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council starting August 2013.  Her exhibition record includes  a number of venues domestically and abroad, including Wave Hill Arts Center / Bronx Museum, The Asian Arts Initiative, Brunei Gallery, Exit Art, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, Woman Made Gallery and university museums including Norwich University, the State University of New York at Brockport, The University of the Arts and the University of Tennessee.  Her work is in regional and national and internatioanl private collections. She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
