In this solo exhibition 'Seeing Ourselves' Sharon Walters creates intricate hand-assembled collages & cut-outs honouring Black women - their history, culture & identity. She explores themes of identity & representation & creates multi-layered portraits in which she, literally & metaphorically, opens up space. These portraits provide a portal and centre those who are often excluded & unheard in mainstream Western media.

In 'Seeing Ourselves' Sharon Walters creates intricate hand-assembled collages honouring Black women - their history, culture and identity.

 

Walters explores themes of identity and representation through fragile and detailed paper cut-outs and collages where she creates multi-layered portraits in which she, literally and metaphorically, opens up space. These dimensional portraits provide a portal and centre those who are often excluded and unheard in mainstream Western society. She creates an alternative narrative which reflects the complexity of these women’s stories and experiences.

 

“My work aims to explore and indulge in the multiplicity of Blackness and the embrace of our non- monolithic experiences.” SW

 

HackelBury Fine Art was founded twenty-five years ago by Sascha Hackel and Marcus Bury. The gallery is committed to championing artists who push the boundaries of their medium to create meaningful and contemplative work. Originally renowned for showcasing classic 20th-century photography, the gallery has embraced more conceptual and abstract art over the past 15 years, expanding its stable of artists to include those working in photography, drawing, painting and collage.

HackelFury Fine Art represents a select group of artist whose work reflects a profound depth of thought and dedication to their craft.
