“Grand Chartreuse” by Sharon Virtue
Sharon Virtue is a British artist of mixed Jamaican and Irish heritage, currently living in Oakland California. She is a painter, dancer and ceramic artist, with many years of experience in community development. She has a strong social practice and has worked internationally, believing that artists are agents of transformation. Her mission is to inspire, encourage and provide access to the greater community in the creation of art.
For this exhibition at Palette, she explores The Cornucopia as a mythological symbol of plenty, nourishment and abundance. Inspired by women of the world surrounded by the bounty of the marketplace, Sharon’s works narrate stories of shape shifting, initiation, metamorphosis and power. They contain mythological beings, which exist amidst the veils of humankind, the natural world and the supernatural.
