Sallie Scheufler

Born: 1988, Jacksonville, AR

Biography and Information

Sallie Scheufler explores how relationships within her family affect the her sense of self. In her recent series Family Resemblance, she utilizes tools found in the beauty industry to draw attention to physical features, alike and unlike. From dressing in drag to look like her sisters, to getting matching hair cuts with her mom, Scheufler examines superficial desires and the ways that the women in her family perform gender.

Scheufler uses personal history as artistic fodder in the context of feminist theory and familial relationships through performance, video, and photography. She has exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, including the Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, Amarillo Museum of Art, Northlight Gallery in Phoenix, 516 ARTS, and the University of New Mexico Art Museum. Scheufler is the recipient of the Beaumont Newhall Fellowship and the Robert Heinecken scholarship, among others. She received her MFA in studio art from the University of New Mexico and her BFA from Arizona State University and currently lives and works in Albuquerque.
