About Me

Matruka Sherman

Fine Art Photographer

Matruka Sherman has been involved with photography as a fine art since 1970 when she studied photography and film as an art major at Brooklyn College. She had her first one woman exhibition in 1973 at the age of 22 at Avanti gallery in New York City.  She also has photos in the Library of Congress from an exhibit called The Bus Show.

Matruka has shown in numerous settings around the East Coast including Sag Harbor and East Hampton. Since 1974 Matruka has been actively involved in meditation, and experiences her work as a direct expression of this involvement. 

She is especially interested in capturing the inner light of the subject. At times that light may be expressed as vibrant and numinous, longing to burst forth and be revealed.  At other times it is indrawn, silent and still.  

"I view art as a place of refuge and solace, to transport one out of the ordinary, to loosen the grip of the concrete structural world into one that is more fluid and spacious. 

With a background in psychology and metaphysics there is a strong urge to assist the viewer in going deeper or higher. 

Most of all, I believe in the soothing power of beauty to heal. My photos are intended to elicit an experience that transcends ordinary reality. In that way, one remembers that everything pulsates with consciousness and, by pausing to reflect, we are reminded of our own inner beauty and purest nature".             

Many of the more recent photos are composites and are taken and edited only on  the iPhone.                    

Matruka has won numerous awards and her work is included in many private collections.  She is a member of Huron River Art Collective, formerly called Ann Arbor Women Artists where she served as Vice President. Matruka is also a member of The Scarab Club in Detroit MI.  She currently resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she is a psychotherapist in private practice.  She also spends time in her home in Sag Harbor,  New York.
