Sharon Levy's work explores the psychological charge of spaces, and moments of tension between people, and between people and their environments. From a point of view that is childlike, but not overly sentimental, she uses her own memories, as well as images from fiction and history to examine locations that trigger feelings of wonder, awkwardness, fear, and isolation. She is also interested in the transformation of two-dimensional drawings and paintings into three-dimensional sculptures.
With her current project “The Wood” she is using several modes of two and three-dimensional representation to explore the forest as an enchanted space that is both threatening and threatened.
Sharon Levy is a mixed-media artist from Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated from Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY with a B.A in studio art, and was the recipient of the 1999 Bard Fellowship in sculpture at the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts, Bard College. She has exhibited in New York, San Diego, Tijuana, and Los Angeles. She is currently pursuing her M.F.A. at the University of California, San Diego.
