Art’s Alive Presents
Art’s Alive welcomes Burlington based artist, Steve Sharon to The Gallery at Lake & College.
The pieces that Steve is incorporating for this show involve a deep and heavy process of a paint method that he stumbled upon through chance and the artistic mind that comes with not having been schooled by Art teachers. He went to school for music and has been a musician since the age of 14 and started painting about 5 years ago when his focus changed from music. The process he is showing within this show is to get a full on abstract visual of what certain colors look like when they come up from under a surface of complimentary moods and tones. The Abstract Expressionist in him wants the viewer to look upon the painting and come to their own conclusion as to what they see. As in all of us, we carry emotions which nurture a deep sense of reality inside our being, so what one person sees inside an abstract painting, another may see something completely different. It’s his goal to have his paintings be looked at for more than one to two minutes, the longer one gets lost inside a painting, the stronger that communication becomes apparent, strengthened and understood between the artist and the viewer.
