Sharon Gordon
From The West

2012

About

In Sharon Gordon's landscapes, you can feel her deep connection and passion for the ever-changing nature of large bodies of water, and the mystery and promise of the horizon. The view imposes a presence, a meter, balancing human scale and condition as a piece of a larger perspective. According to Sharon, "My current work is intended to capture and transport the viewer into a segment of a larger landscape that may be seemingly ambiguous, yet familiar. The paintings provide an opportunity to wander through passages exploring one’s whereabouts, recalling moments of time and space that may have been visited before." She indirectly draws inspiration from some of the masters of landscape painting including the Hudson River School artists, J. M. W. Turner and Emilio Sánchez Perrier. Sharon's paintings balance delicately on the fine line between abstraction and representation. What is a threatening sky to one viewer becomes a turbulent sea to another; what strikes one as serene instills anxiety in another. Sharon’s landscapes are infused with an emotional power and sense of harmonious tension that is uniquely her own vision. Sharon has been featured in gallery exhibits throughout the US since 1998 including participation in the Everson Museum of Art Biennial in Syracuse. Her work has also been seen in films and TV including 30 Rock, and Game Change. "From the West" is Oil on Board, 18x18, Unframed.
