Sherri Wolfgang’s “Twisted” series of life sized paintings, dramatically captures our society’s fascination with warped mental and physical states of cosmetic surgery.

Using her own body as model, she creates a narrative of what she is witnessing. Our society’s culture of youth obsession and physical beauty has taken its toll on American women’s self image and esteem -  to the point of twisting and distorting their own bodies and minds.

Whether it’s marking up Wolfgang’s own body to show the dehumanization inherent in potential cosmetic surgeries, images of finding detached body parts on a train, or tracking the hopes and then horrified realizations of pre – and post – surgeries, Wolfgang’s works exposes the essence of this unfortunate and unnecessary phenomenon.
