Sharon Shapiro at Poem 88

Sharon Shapiro co-opts the language of Madison Avenue: lush colors, bold compositions, beautiful people. But her work has a quality of pronounced disquiet that adds depth and interest. Whether wounded, disaffected, or full of longing, her subjects command attention.

“I am fascinated by the conflict between the inner and outer lives of human experience, between the self's placid exterior and its churning, riotous core." Shapiro explores "ideas of beauty, seduction, transformation, and coming apart at the seams."  Shapiro’s solo show, Strawberry Letter 23 will be on view at Poem 88 in Atlanta, GA. Opening reception/’70s style dance party at 7 pm. Through August 9. http://sharonshapiro.com/
