Paintings at home

The silver lining in the grey cloud of this recession has been that as I continue to produce work regardless of the art market buying conditions, more and more paintings are accumulating in my studio and shouting out to me to “take them home”!  I’ve been having lots of fun staging them and working them into the different rooms of my house, but most of all, enjoying them outside of gallery and studio and website.  How luxurious this seems given that I’ve rarely ever kept a painting for myself.  Art sales feed the craft–studio rent, supplies and framing–and my favorite works have sold fairly quickly in the past.  Not to say this one won’t show up in an exhibit soon, but for the immediate future I get to lay on my couch and do the contemplatin’.

      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.
