SPOTLIGHT ON: Sheri L. Wright
How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?
Steve Zimmer invited me to participate. I’ve known Steve in the literary world for many years and knew that Imaginarium was going to be a well-planned and author/artist-friendly event. I absolutely wanted to be a part of it.
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
Rodz ‘N Rust is my forthcoming title from Acclaim Press, due for release this fall. It’s an automotive photo book that would make an excellent gift book for automotive enthusiasts or for those who appreciate fine art.
Quick description of it.
Rodz ‘N Rust explores the rust and renewal of cars and trucks, dating from the 1970’s muscle car era, all the way back to the 1920’s. I include a lot of abstractions of the rust and weathered patina, shadows curved around Detroit steel, the personalities exuding from well-crafted rides that emote sensuality swaggering down the road.
Something unique about it.
Many automotive photo books focus on restored cars and trucks. I explore the abstractions found only in rust and peeling paint, chrome worked into ornamental art, the stories these rides have that could only be gathered from miles and miles of road. explores the rust and renewal of cars and trucks, dating from the 1970’s muscle car era, all the way back to the 1920’s.
