Russell Sharon “My paintings are abstractions of landscape.
This exhibition is composed of work inspired either by wetlands or the horizon line in this paintings
I have reduced the landscapes into its simplistic forms, using a single line to suggest the horizon or
a variety of shapes and colors to indicate reflections in a movement of water.
Texture, color, balance, harmony and beauty are important elements of my work. I build the paintings
up with layers of complementary colors and spontaneous, graceful shapes.
I paint because it is my passion. It gives me joy and a deep sense of connection to life”.
