Cherie Harte (b.1973) is a Toronto born artist. Best known for her playful exploration of the human figure, Harte’s work is an expression of freedom and experimentation.
Harte began her art career at ArteMbassy Gallery School in Toronto. Cherie also draws on her background in psychology, yoga, and reiki to delve into the human psyche through the lens of growth.
Intrigued by the evolution of the human spirit; Harte seeks to translate intimate thoughts, moments, and feelings of daily life into art works. Harte’s use of symbolism, as well as hidden and fractured images, draw the onlooker into multilayered portals of storytelling. Although at times seemingly raw, Harte challenges the onlooker to lean in and fully immerse ones self, with an open heart.
Cherie's work has been celebrated in ads for Saatchi Art and was recently named “Must See Artist” at “The Other Art Fair”, by Rebecca Wilson Chief Curator and Vice President of Art Advisory at Saatchi Art (Los Angeles March 2019).
Harte's work was featured in the 75th anniversary exhibit of Peggy Guggenheim's “31 Women” exhibition, as selected by juror Kate Bryan, head curator of SoHo House International (Sept 2018).
Cherie has exhibited in Canada, the USA, London UK, and Tokyo Japan.
