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.
