Description

Horizon – an exhibition of new work by Co. Antrim artist Sharon Adams. Ranging from peat charcoal mark making on paper to large scale pieces in wood and steel.

Horizon presents a collection of works that respond to the soft curves of the hills surrounding Sharon Adams’s Co. Antrim studio. Ranging from peat charcoal mark making on paper to large scale pieces in wood and steel, this new work puts drawing at its centre as Sharon translates lines into material form.

Using wood metal and textiles Sharon’s work tells stories through crafted objects. Deeply rooted in the farming landscape, her practice is directed by an intuitive response to the local and her emerging relationship to her homeplace. Seeking out points of connection with its lines and surfaces, textures and patterns she produces objects and drawings informed by a life-long relationship with a landscape that is both familiar and ever-changing. Previous work includes interpretations of tools and of land & weather measurements. In 2018 she started to make direct explorations of her connection to the townland where her family has farmed for five generations, and this new body of work responds specifically to the area that lies within the horizon seen from her home at Frocess Yard.

Horizon was commissioned by R-Space Gallery, thanks to funding from ACNI. In 2019 Sharon was recipient of a Jerwood Bursary and a DCCoI Tyrone Guthrie Centre Residency Bursary.
