Lovelife (Nebula Study)

About Sharon Horvath

Sharon Horvath begins each of her pieces with what she calls a “blind drawing,” made almost instinctively wherever she happens to be—even in the car. These drawings supply the basic form for her larger mixed-media paintings, which variously resemble figurative narrative landscapes or abstract textile patterns. Horvath draws inspiration from a wide range of sources, including Edward Hicks, Jean-Antoine Watteau, folk art, Etruscan objects, and Roman frescoes. She was particularly affected by the work of Martin Ramírez, to whom she has dedicated a series of works. The visual effect of Horvath’s works has been described as dream-like, and famed critic Jerry Saltz once called her works “condensed visionary fictions.”
