Some Things Can Change Your Forever
Sharon Weiner was born in St.Louis, Missouri. She received her B. A. from the University of Missouri and her M. F. A. from Claremont Graduate University. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Her paintings have been exhibited locally and nationally and are included in many permanent collections such as The Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR, Adobe Systems,Inc., San Jose, CA, and the Wellington Management Company, Boston,MA. She is represented by Ruth Bachofner Gallery in Los Angeles, CA and Alan Avery Art Company in Atlanta,GA.
The imagery in Weiner's paintings have a nature and cosmic-like aspect, but are grounded in the non-physical realm of the artist's consciousness. The forms represent her own language for translating the inner reality she harnesses and the external observations in the natural world that inspire her.
She fabricates her paintings by pouring and manipulating paint and medium across the surface of the paintings, building up several layers of paint in the process. Although the pouring is directed and controlled, it allows for unexpected occurrences.
