Studio Makeover

My brain has been consumed with DIY and the Home & Garden Show (I am the event director) and motivated by the fact that 30 of my paintings are out on exhibit, I gave my studio a make-over today.  One stop shop at Lowe’s for paint (the color Empire by Valspar), a gnarly woven jute rug, lamp, plants and screening curtains completely transformed the open space into an inviting sitting/conceptualizing area (can’t wait to get my art books in there), a drawing area, a space to hide all my shit and the ugly sink and a really great  space to paint with enough room to really back up from the paintings or adjust to the light.  My works look fab on the warm grey wall, so this will provide a good backdrop for showing and photographing.  My hubby says he’s got a  painting cart for me (the Bertoia chairs and Exhibition bench are courtesy his company http://www.modernclassics.com).  To complete the look I’m dreaming about getting a cabinet built around the sink with a not-mauve counter and not-mauve formica backsplash.  All in good time.

      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.
