« I create images of the social and private lives of women and children as a means to express vulnerability, chronicling the complexities of growing up female in America. »

Sharon Shapiro is an American contemporary artist who lives and works in Virginia. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art and is currently an MFA candidate at the Maine College of Art. Her figurative paintings portray opposing forces; the subject matter is both gentle and abrasive, fantastic and real, utopian and dystopian.

Inspired by the past

Shapiro explores her own and other people’s pasts, often through their family photographs, drawing inspiration from personal memories. Interested by the conflict between the inner and outer self, her work aims to break down this barrier and explore complex emotions. The narrative in her work results from an ongoing struggle to establish a sense of place in a world where meaning shifts and recollections fail.

Exploring memory and childhood

Shapiro works primarily with oil on canvas to create her dreamlike works. Beauty in her work serves as a temptation for the viewer, but upon closer inspection, the cracks in the artifice reveal a darker side. Employing visual disruptions and bold color, she combines realism and abstraction to create an experience that interests both the brain and the body.

National success

Shapiro has exhibited widely in the USA, and overseas in the UK. She has been awarded several residencies, and in 2018 was a second time recipient of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship. Shapiro’s work features in significant collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia in Atlanta, Georgia.
