Healing Through Art Exhibit

I am so honored to be participating in the Healing through Art Exhibit at Peace Health St Josephs Medical Center beginning Feb 3 and running through May 19th.  The Group Exhibit is titled Spring Reflections with many of my works carrying the theme of spring renewal and the cycle of life.  Last Fall while I was considering the works that would be appropriate for this exhibit and contemplating new works, I came across the poet Carl Dennis.  His words in the poem Unfolding are ever so relevant for those of us who struggle with our emotions, responses and understandings when accompanying a loved one through an illness–

This painting, 48 x 60 inches, will be part of the exhibit at the hospital, along with 9 other works that I’ll post periodically over the course of the next few weeks.  If you know of someone spending time at the hospital, encourage them to seek them out and read the words.

      Sharon Kingston is a Northwest WA oil painter who uses the properties of her medium to create paintings that respond to both the atmosphere of her surroundings and poetry. This method of looking inward and outward and, in the moments of painting, finding her way on the canvas is her approach to creating paintings infused with poetry and the memory of landscape. The atmospheric element of her work is a testament to her desire to create spaces that are undefined, contemplative and allow room to reflect and accept uncertainty. Poetry, by nature open ended, is used both in the conceptualization of the work and as a part of the studio practice. The words of Rainer Rilke have informed Sharon’s work for many years, but she also turns to contemporary poetry when it resonates with her life. She uses layers of transparent color, reveals forms by concealing and unearthing pentimenti and suggests elements of landscape in her process.
