Sharon has been using the cyanotype process for a number of years to explore image making and alternative printing processes. Projects explore the bench as object and the space in which it and we sit. The simple, elegant lines, wide-open spaces, expanses of colour and our familiarity with the object provide opportunities for the viewer to bring their own meaning and interpretation, memories and stories.
Sharon’s starting point often comes from walking alone and photographing the benches discovered along the way. She is interested in simplifying the image, reducing the initial photograph to its simplest forms to create images that are quiet, calm, restful and reflective.
