Fauna Flora Figure: A Collection of Paintings by Shar Coulson

Artist’s  Proof  is  pleased  to  announce  the  exhibition, Fauna Flora Figure: A Collection of Paintings by Shar Coulson. Coulson is greatly influenced by the interconnection between humanity and nature. The organic qualities of her work stem from her deep love and respect for nature and its mysterious repetition of line and form.  The opening reception will be held on May 5, 2017 from 6-8 pm at Artist’s  Proof  located  at  1533  Wisconsin  Ave  NW,  Washington  D.C.  20007. The exhibition will close on May 28, 2017.

Working from visual memory, Coulson explores the idea of perception vs. reality within the allusive figuration, gestural line work and organic forms found in her paintings. The figuration appears and disappears within the shapes and gestural movements. Formally trained in classical figurative realism, she finds her passion runs deepest in the world of abstractions. Shar Coulson lives in the Near West Side Market District of Chicago and is a founding member of the Chicago Art Salon.

“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.” – Shar Coulson
