    Celebrating their Beauty  

    The newest series by Sharron Ott

    These vibrant, and expressive pieces of art depict the regal, yet fragile animals that face endangerment on the planet Earth. As an artist, I study their forms: feathers, fur, muscles, and bones, while I create. I find inspiration in each creature’s magnificent design. I mix paint with
    other mediums in a free flowing way to achieve the feeling of movement and life
    The edges of the paintings carry words, which provide knowledge of the species. As the audience bends and twists to read the periphery they are engaged on physical and verbal, as well as visual levels.
    My intention is to trigger awareness in the minds of humans, so that many might unite in the struggle to save the wild life habitats.
    The paintings establish a format to embrace these animals and celebrate their beauty rather than mourn their loss.
