Short Bio

Cherisse Alcantara (b. 1986, Philippines) is an emerging painter based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was born in the Philippines and emigrated to the United States as a teenager. She received her B.A. Art Practice at the University of California, Berkeley in 2013 and was the recipient of the Sussman Award in Painting. Her works have been exhibited in numerous galleries including Vessel Gallery in Oakland, the Arc Gallery in San Francisco, Worth Ryder Gallery, Pence Gallery, Berkeley Art Center, and the Piedmont Center for the Arts. She recently had her first solo exhibition at the Pence Gallery in Davis, California in 2017. Cherisse investigates the figure in space and draws upon the tradition and techniques of oil painting. Her works explore contemporary figures, often in action or motion, caught unawares, and suspended in imagined and atmospheric spaces which are built through layers of paint, tones and color. Psychological states, memories, contemporary life, figuration, abstract landscapes and the history of  painting are referred to and intertwined in her paintings.
