Sharon Cavagnolo: “New Paradigms”

In this exhibit of dazzling abstract paintings, the artist deals with chaos and the human need to control and come to terms with it.  For the artist, a gestural or impulsive movement often serves as the beginning of an idea for a painting, with subsequent layers imparting balance, line, color and pattern, creating an alternate reality in the process.

An exhibit of works about second chances given to forgotten moments in forgotten lives of forgotten people, to be re-lived in a different way by people of our time.  The central theme in these paintings is a mixture of tension and solitude that seems to bring people together, while simultaneously pulling them apart.
