Painting Large Clouds

I’m committed to painting large.  This painting is 48 x 48 and the subject and my style are quite wonderful at this scale.  Not only do I feel like the luckiest person on earth when I’m working on these paintings in my studio, but I am completely engrossed in both the process and the result.  It’s as if every painting I’ve done over the past two years has been a study for these new works.  There is subtlety and boldness, energy and calm, depth and surface and just a universe for the eye to wander in.  Rilke is all about merging the polarity of existence–and finding a way to express and unify these elements in my paintings has been an underlying intent in my work since embracing his words as a muse for my work.

Abend-Liebe-Lied


 
Dekorative Wolken bestehen ein Abendliebelied; eine Straße verläßt 
evasively. Der neue Mond fängt 

an 
ein neues Kapitel unserer Nächte, jener schwachen Nächte dehnen wir 
heraus aus und die mit diesen schwarzen horizontals sich vermischen. 

Evening Love Song


Ornamental clouds compose an evening love song; a road leaves evasively. The new moon begins

a new chapter of our nights, of those frail nights we stretch out and which mingle with these black horizontals.

Rainer Maria Rilke

      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.
