Dana Sherwood is a multimedia artist who examines the expansive topic of the Anthropocene. The artist is best known for preparing elaborate banquets and cakes for local wildlife, the consumption of which she documents with covert video footage and fanciful watercolors. Sherwood’s work creatively examines the complex and intimate relationship between humans and other animals in an increasingly homogenized ecosystem, one which is threatened by climate change and development.

Her work has been featured or reviewed in publications including The New York Times, Forbes, Hyperallergic, Surface, The Village Voice, Food & Wine, The Huffington Post, Art F City, and the Miami Rail. Sherwood has received several prestigious residencies including Swing Space by LMCC, Pilchuck Glass School, and OMI International Arts Center.
