Sharon Paster: Outside In

Sharon Paster is inspired by the coastal landscape surrounding her in Northern California and Baja, Mexico.

She layers oil colors, plays with space, and contrasts the solid with the ephemeral, the fixed with the fluid, to explore the forces of nature continuously at work. The surfaces of her contemporary abstract paintings are often calm, but the tension is ever-present. Everything pulsates with life, on the verge of movement and change.

Robbie Sugg: Past Present

Artist Statement – My artistic process is a response to my present location. Starting with the artifacts and surfaces of the place in which I reside, I construct images that visualize the accretive effect of a place being lived in. I am most drawn to the intersection of painting and print media, two antiquated mediums that, despite their supposed obsolescence, continue to be utilized indefinitely. 

My vocabulary manifests as a mélange of forms: incidental marks, surfaces, street grids, landscapes, architectures, photography, signage, and detritus. 

I am interested in how ordinary minutiae mark the passage of time and people, and how they speak to what is forgotten or left behind in our social consciousness. The detritus manifested by a place is a microcosm of that place; they are symbols of their own becoming, and of their own deterioration. The images straddle the boundary between the abstract and the recognizable, the intentional and the unintentional, what is preserved and what is lost.
