New Small Works Series


I’ve been looking for a way to be creative and expressive and work on a small scale for a long time. I’ve also had a secret habit of collecting loads of paint chips every time I visit the home improvement store with absolutely no intention of painting a wall. This is because I love color and the names of colors and the images these names and colors bring to mind. At one point I thought about creating paint palette poetry and corresponding paintings. But now I’ve got it! thanks to the fact that I’ve been painting every day and my great iphone and all its wonderful apps (you’ll find I’m all about linkages). Using the left over paint on my palette at the end of the day, I create a quick loose abstracted landscape. The painting evolves over the course of the week and then I snap a shot of it into my ColorSnap palette app and out pops a palette of my painting. The palette paintings! 12×12 oil on canvas.

      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.
