Sharon Spillar - Paintings
“I am inspired by views and reactions to places and spaces from both imaginary and actual experience; such as a body of water, a wild storm, a vivid dream. These works are spontaneous reactions to memories and feelings from my life. My images are mapped with marks, lines and color, both expressive and linear. Color and line are essential in the communication of my work. After the painting is completed, I add a 1/8” thick layer of UV infused Resin. This gives my work another dimension by adding reflections of the outside world to the work.”
Sharon travels to art fairs and festivals all over the country and her work can be found in gallery exhibits, homes and companies throughout the United States, Taiwan, Norway, Portugal, Belgium, Malaysia, Trinidad and Tobago, Ireland, United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, Denmark, Iceland, France, Hong Kong, Japan, England, China, and Canada
Sharon Spillar - Mixed Media
My life is crazy-fun, potently purposeful & positive in a house full of two teens (when they are home from college), three cats, a spoiled dog, and the art of many of my friends.
I am inspired by peeling paint, old architecture, my flower garden, things I have heard and felt, my general surroundings, and recurring and profound celebrations of the fragile and precious gift of life and the will to live, and the joys & sorrows this can bring. My work shows reality in all its wonder & wisdom: discovery & mystery; grace & grit; science & math; words & places; peace & discord; life & death; etc. And, each piece has a unique history of the inspiration and combination of found, gifted and carefully collected & created set of objects, images & meanings it contains.
MIXED MEDIA - ink, acrylic, chalk, paper, pencil, Lettraset, etc. on cradled board ( Many works include my personal notes and drawings from sitting in various hotels and bars, or those my loved ones deemed fit to contribute)
