Artist Information for Sharon McCartney

My work is about collecting and a life-long passion for objects found in the natural world, my source of sanctuary, wonder, and personal rhythm. Birds, wildflowers and insects rendered in extensive detail, are set within layered histories of surface pattern. They have become personal icons, representing
themes of vulnerability, transformation, and survival.

Integral to my work is the use of layering and collage. Images are embellished with stitching and personal “text” markings.  These elements reflect encounters with the natural world where with collected views and flashes of details pass through our senses and form our experiences.
