Sharon Griffin: New Works / Gwaith Newydd

26 May - 19 June 2019

For her new show with us at Ffin Y Parc, Sharon exploits the inherent contradiction of her medium: constantly using the solidity, malleability and sheer earthiness of her material to create something explicitly and exquisitely fragile. The work bears the marks of her fingers; the scratches and dents from her tools become the scars and bruises that life and time inflict.

 

With their grace, beauty and self-possession her figures speak eloquently of resilience and survival. From the basest of raw materials, Sharon fashions glimpses of something noble, unbreakable and transcendent.

 

Sharon grew up in Telford, and trained at the University of Wolverhampton. This is her third show for us, following her successful exhibition last year.
