Sharon Haward

The images which appear in my paintings are based on real things glimpsed, viewed, experienced, sought after or researched; these found forms imprint themselves, in colour and form in my mind and after a period gestation an independent organic form evolves.

Each painting contains a core, which initially represents something based within the realm of natural history, that is to say geology, fossils, biology,astronomy and archaeology. These images form a starting point from which a discourse between the original and a new image develops until a form is found that is somehow 'right' and representative of my original impetus.
