Introducing: Shar Coulson
Shar Coulson, Fauna Flora Figure 166, mixed media on linen, 40 x 48 inches
Foster/White Gallery is pleased to introduce, the artwork of painter Shar Coulson. Citing organic form as the starting point and inspiration of her work, Coulson creates pieces that dance between expansive and intimate, vibrant and monochrome, and recognizable and unknown. Her current body of work, Fauna Flora Figure, is at times windy, as color and form converge and expand in each piece. Internally explorative as they are gestural, Coulson's active paintings impart nature’s ever-changing, ever-growing dynamism.
Coulson translates not only the physicality of the act of painting, but a cohesive perspective within each work. “Each free-flowing exploration is only complete when the abstract touches the familiar; that point when something definite has been created, but its mystery is still intact.”
