Surviving the Parting and Nature in the Balance Exhibit


Be ahead of all parting, as if it had already happened, like winter, which even now is passing. For beneath the winter is a winter so endless that to survive it at all is a triumph of the heart.

Be forever dead in Eurydice, and climb back singing. Climb praising as you return to connection. Here among the disappearing, in the realm of the transient, be a ringing glass that shatters as it rings.

Be. And know as well the need to not be: let that ground of all that changes bring you to completion now.

To all that has run it course, and to the vast unsayable numbers of beings abounding in Nature, add yourself gladly, and cancel the cost.

Rainer Maria Rilke

The Whatcom Museum is holding an open exhibition in conjunction with its upcoming Vanishing Ice show titled Nature in the Balance.  Artists are encouraged to submit pieces which speak to the topic of our changing climate. This is my submission, titled Surviving the Parting.

    please send me note before you stop by

    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.
