Guy Sherwin was born 1948 and studied painting at Chelsea School of Art in the 1960s. His subsequent film works, often including live elements and serial forms, are characterised by an enduring concern with light and time as the fundamentals of cinema. Recent works include multi-screen projection and gallery installations.
Sherwin taught printing and processing at the London Filmmaker's Co-op (now LUX) during the mid-70s. His films have been widely exhibited in England and abroad, as part of 'Film as Film' Hayward Gallery 1979, 'Live in Your Head' Whitechapel Gallery 2000, 'Shoot Shoot Shoot' Tate Modern 2002, 'A Century of Artists' Film & Video' Tate Britain 2003/4; also shown on BBC2, Channel 4 and Arte TV France. Solo shows include San Francisco Cinematheque, LUX London, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Image Forum Tokyo. He lives in London and teaches at Middlesex University, the University of Wolverhampton and periodically at the San Francisco Art Institute.
