BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Sharon A. Loper has exhibited widely throughout the United States. Acknowledged by collectors and critics, she has been included in numerous public and private collections both here and abroad. Collections include: Museum Katten Kabinet, permanent collection, Amsterdam, Holland, San Diego Childrens Hospital and the Los Angeles Zoo. Currently represented by Galleries in New York, Napa Valley, Washington D.C. and Chicago.

Loper is a watcher and listener who, with diligence, shapes internal fires. She channels energies with precise mastery and deployment of her craft, using negative and positive space to create a ballet of shifting light and angles. Classically educated, she is careful about the truth as she approaches her work, ultimately creating a power of narrative voice in her silent figures and animals. She embraces paradox and honors her subject with poetic beauty as she straddles traditional, classical method of execution and contemporary psychological ambiguity.
