Perception vs. Reality: An Exhibition of Works by Shar Coulson

October 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+0

Free

Artist’s Proof is pleased to announce Perception vs. Reality: an exhibition of works by American artist
Shar Coulson. A curated selection of her paintings will be on view at Artist’s Proof this October. Please
join us for the opening reception on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 at 4 pm at Artist’s Proof Gallery
located at 1533 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington D.C. The exhibition will be on view from October 20,

2018, to November 25, 2018.

Formally trained in atelier-style realism, Shar Coulson (American, b. 1955) finds her passion runs most rooted in the world of Organic Abstraction. Not a school or a movement but characterized by “the use of rounded abstract forms based on what one finds in nature,” which was prevalent in artists and sculptors such as Kandinsky, Miro, Henry Moore, and Jean Arp. In the beginning, each painting is abstract in all aspects. As the figuration appears and disappears within the gestural movements, Coulson is forever probing the idea of perception vs. reality. In her series Fauna Flora Figure, Coulson generates various visual sensations and perceptual experiences. The viewer’s experiences dictate their perception and reality allowing unlimited viewpoints seen within a single composition.
