About The Artwork

Wheel & Hand work altered clay with wall putty and paint. It intrigues me to express the process of form formation. The formation, movement and variability that is reflected in the finished sculpture; as a working material, the ceramic material I work with is an organic, fascinating and contrast containing material: it is basically plastic and soft and by combustion processes changes chemically and physically and becomes solid. The challenge in my work is to give expression to the inner forces of softness and flow that emanate from the walls of the "rigid" cube. The work on display is part of a series of a transformational evolutionary nature that sets each of the series apart. At the same time each series, as well as each work, is independent, and contains an expression of my study of movement in the body in the mind and in the spirit, a study that reflects the movements during their formation. The first works were created in porcelain; I created abstract organic bodies in search of intuitive movement and the way to preserve it even in the solidifying material while digging, opening, removing layers, disassembly and assembly, formal effects that are manifested at this stage and are related to the Mediterranean world (creatures and landscapes of the water depth and the beach). Later I turned to working on walls and the same spontaneous movement forms erupted from the wall or from panels that resembled wall surfaces. The wall actually defined a boundary and interior and exterior areas, overlooking until an eruption arising from the hidden depth that is revealed and changes the surface. The effects in this series are related to the rift, eruption, tectonic movement, and the shapes were inspired mostly by desert mountain views on the Syrian-African Rift line. In the third series, a work from which I am presenting to you, I used a cube shape, a basic geometric shape with sharp and clear straight lines very much in contrast to the complex, twisting, sensual movements. In this work they seem to take on a life of their own and take over the cube to the point that they consume it. The choice to leave the material white as it is emphasizing the play of light and shadow. The processes of change also include a change in mass and the viewer's movement: if in the first series (the porcelain sculptures) the viewer was given the opportunity to grasp the works and rotate them with both hands, in the last series the mass and dimensions increased and the viewer is required to move around the work.

My name is Sharon, I am married and a mother of two children I was born is Israel in a northern town along the seashore, and ever since I remember myself the sea has been an integral part of my personal and family life. Throughout the seasons of the year and in any mood, I go to the beach for a swim or a stroll. The sea and the natural shore, ceaselessly changing, always provide me with joyful and exciting surprises, particularly after stormy days. The composition of the light, the air, the water and the sand, the shapes, the textures, the colors, shades and shadows, the softness and the intensity which I absorb through all my senses, are deeply assimilated into my soul and are part of the language expressed in my works of art. Since my childhood I have been engaging in various types of creation, drawing and painting being the major fields. Currently these fields are also important to me and serve as the initial small window to my work in ceramic sculpture, while these constitute a kind of entrance door to intrinsic worlds. I am a graduate of Visual Design at the Neri Bloomfield Academy of Design and Education, in Israel. I have engaged in Graphic Design for about 10 years, out of which I managed my own studio for 7 years. The increasing computerization of the field generated within me a desire for real manual work, such that senses directly the material. And as much as technology in the design field became more virtual the more I felt an increasing desire to engage in designing raw material. Soil. Clay. Consequently, I shut down the design studio and turned to realize my old love for ceramics. I studied and delved into it with the assistance of various teachers, in art centers, workshops and private lessons and created my own functional ceramic. The family relocated to the United States in (8/2009 - 8/2013) constituted, on my part, an opportunity to reach the goal I have aspired for - to create and express art via ceramics. Two years of focusing on ceramic sculpture, instructed by Regis Brodie at the Skidmor College, has helped me a lot. My work is a quest, an exploration, discovery, attentiveness, an exposure. I am seeking the spontaneous, intuitive work, free of intervention of criticism and control that will be expressed at the more advanced stages of the work, and will thus express the importance of meticulous accurate esthetics as an expression of beauty.
