Sharon Kingston

     Sharon Kingston is an oil painter who uses the properties of her medium to create abstract 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. Sharon resides in Bellingham WA with her husband and two teenage children. She studied fine art after a career in the printing and publishing industry and has been exhibiting her paintings professionally for the past 10 years. Her paintings are held in collections throughout the United States and Canada.
