About Sharon

I do not view my work as stark images or objects, but as an amalgamation of hues and shapes that may change at any second, mimicking life itself. I explore the construct of texture, and how it fades my subject to a memory or an emotion. I enjoy the subtlety of overlaying images and complex sensations.

I am interested in the documentation of memory and place. I strive to find beauty in often overlooked structures and spaces. I incorporate the energy, the tension, and the emotions felt in the environment, from that instant when my feet were planted on the street, in a field, or on the edge of a balcony. At times, commentaries on the changing environment and political or social references surface in the work. The moving of shapes becomes an intellectual voyage as I articulate impressions of my surroundings.
