The Dad Box

The Dad Box by Sherry Mills #1

THE DAD BOX was inspired by the pain and strength of my Father. Though a devastating car crash broke him, and Parkinson’s has shaped his movements and speech, his unyielding spirit still remarks at the magnificence of the new apples on his tree. He epitomizes what it means to… MORE

The Rapunzel Box

The Rapunzel Box by Sherry Mills #1

I was asked to produce a work to serve as the centerpiece of a scene in the short film “Butterfly & the Beast,” created by Joe Nardelli and Nathalie Michel. THE RAPUNZEL BOX represents my adaptation of Joe’s script, in which “the Beast” behind the lens falls in love with the illusive, wanderlust French teacher Rapunzel, a woman he never attains. The box personifies the Beast’s heartache, Rapunzel’s shunning, a student’s self-involvement, and hints at the instrumental waves that carry the drama to its climax.

Documentary In Progress

Parading Truck Trailer by the Plants

When my A CLOSER NY imagery made its first outdoor appearance as a 40 foot scaffolding installation on E. 4th Street in 2009 (as part of FAB’s ArtUp Program), I was approached by young French filmmaker Nathalie Michel. She had an interest in making a short about my creative process. New to the US, Nathalie struck me as a hyper-perceptive being with a quiet secret. I’ve watched her create with a calm and grace atypical of most film directors. She believes there’s another way MORE

The Rodrigo Box

The Rodrigo Box by Sherry Mills

The Rodrigo Box was created for a gentle and outrageous man in New York City named Rodrigo. It speaks to the themes and challenges that he encounters in his life – from not feeling accepted by his family for his sexuality, to wanting to bust free from submissive patterns and roar in his professional life, to his striving to open and ready himself for a fulfilling partnership. It’s time to dance… MORE
